A few young leaves from a Laingholm garden. This is a plant which often escapes and scrambles out of gardens, becoming a weed.
All parts of a nasturtium are edible. The flowers and leaves can be used in salads and the seeds can be pickled – they are a bit like capers. Using the seeds like this is a good way of containing their general sprawl in warmer areas where they are not killed off by winter frosts. (POD website)
