Hello all. I have a question. I planted nastrium seed in some hanging pots. what I want to know is if I pinch them back after they start, will the plant fill out better. I do this with some of my other plants impatience etc and then plant the stub. I got off there... because I planted some last year and they were leggy not full.??
I thought after they got a couple of sets of leaves I would try this. To maybe get the plant to be more lush?? Any thoughts.

RE: Nastrium

Bonnie - Pinching them when they're young will help make them bushier. I think it's a great idea, especially since they're in pots.
I believe another spelling for the same plant is Nasturtium. If it's the same one, you'll get more matches on google if you use that spelling. Does this look like the same plant?

Here is a link that might be useful: Nasturtiums
