Nasturtiums at Last!
I plant very few seeds. This year I planted Nasturtiums and Californian Poppies. The latter have done surprisingly well, but I have hardly seen a Nasturtium in flower until now.
I suspect this is the reason! My plants are being devoured at a rapid rate by hungry caterpillars.
It would be interesting to know whether the leaf veins are intended to draw the larvae towards the centre of the plant.
The good news is that while I doubt there will be (m)any Nasturtium flowers left, at least there should be a very healthy brood of Large White Butterflies!
