    Anne, nobody knows nasturtium by name or photo. And I'm talking about specialized professionals that sell plants to farmers etc.
    I will do as Irina does, and get them from AliExpress.

    Irina, I think it is "Milk Thistle", judging from the leaves. I never let these grow to see them bloom.

    It looks fantastically beautiful. But I agree that this is a harmful weed.


    Mariana, I'm disappointed with AliExpress. Some seeds do not germinate, or many seeds have a different name. Although the price is very small. You can also try.

    I don't mind trying. I am content with looking out my window and not see a jungle of weeds. The proper greens are just an added bonus.

    Mariana, and do not forget about the clover. Clover is a natural protection against weeds. Clover will help you. Also, you can bring small pieces of turf with clover and fill the areas free of weeds.


    Mariana, I'm sorry that I'm far away. I would like to help you.Name:  смайл домашние &#1.gif

    Yes, but did not buy. AliExpress does not accept PayPal, only direct Credit Card information and I am not putting that on the internet.
    So I'm looking at other places.
    And it is a shame, I made such a beautiful cart, because I found other greens, as well.
    I was not much on the computer for a couple of days, so I resume now.

    Good luck. If you can't find it I could send you seeds. I sent seeds once to Irina for things she couldn't buy in Russia. I can order nasturtium seeds online easily here. I do, of course, use my credit card online. I wonder why that place doesn't accept paypal? It's so common now.

    Maybe you could ask if you can order by mail and send a check or money order?

    Mariana, I saw the seeds on the Amazon. But there the price is higher. And in general it is surprising why there is no nasturtium in Greece.

    I am sure there is, but I just can't find it in my village or Serres.
    When was the last time I ranted about stupid small places? Yeah, I hate them!
    Guys, I saw so many nice things. I will get something, just not from there.
