nasturtiums with squash/pumpkins
I plan to grow nasturtiums along with my squash/pumpkins this year. I have read that nasturtiums are valuable for deterring squash bugs (which I've had a problem with in the past). Anyway, from what I understand, nasturtiums prefer to be left alone, while the squash is a heavy feeder, and as they grow fruit they require large amounts of water.
If anyone has done this companion planting, are there any tips for a successful pairing. My primary goal of the nasturtiums is the squash bug connection, but my wife would appreciate a little more flowers.
