Hardening off Nasturtium seedlings

These little seedlings are climbing nasturtiums which when hardened off in root trainers will be grown up a trellis area in the garden. I love the peppery leaves from the plant and the decorative edible flowers that will add colour to what can sometimes be a fairly green garden. Climbing Nasturtium types grow easy from seed and can grow up to 3 metres tall, varieties like full sun and need little attention as plants thrive off poor soil and not being over watered. I am a big fan of the taste of mustard and the deep pungency of anything Dijon, English or Wasabi lends itself to Nasturium flowers, this will be an edible long flowering plant that will increase my gardening and cooking repertoire.
