Landscaping Ideas from the Denver Botanic Garden
Grow Old-Fashioned Favorites Botanical gardens are a great place to see new varieties. But also keep an eye out for old-fashioned favorites that have a proven track record in your area. California poppy, for example, is often underused in gardens even though it blooms profusely and is delightfully drought tolerant.
Love nasturtiums in the garden and nasturtium flowers in salads, so pretty :)
Nasturtium offers tidy mounds of foliage and cheery blooms in shades of yellow, orange, red, and crimson. Starting Tips: Nasturtium seeds have a tough coat. Soak the seeds in water for 12 to 24 hours before sowing or file away or nick off a small piece of the seed coat before planting. Sow seed 1/2 inch deep; they usually sprout in about a week.
