Early in the summer these nasturtiums were overflowing the window box and thriving, then we hit a hot sunny spell and they showed their displeasure by giving up and dying. I was urged to pull them out, but I didn’t. Instead, I kept watering them, and look what happened, they started growing again.
Unfortunately, this second growth probably has a time limit on it, because sooner or later our over-extended, unusually warm fall will be coming to an end, and then, so will they.
