I'm northwest of Atlanta -- anyone in our middle south region have success growing nasturtiums in your SFG? I'm afraid that a) it will be too hot and b) the Mel's mix will be too rich. Everything I read says they like cooler weather and poor soil. But I WANT a couple of squares of them! :-)

I'm near Charleston, SC so more coastal south but I direct sowed nastriums into my big bed and so far they're doing great. I know I put some in last year, but pretty late, and if I remember correctly one set did well and another set not so well..

I planted some last year. Took me many tries to get some to sprout indoors. They sat there in the garden all summer not doing much of anything. Then when it turned a little cooler in August/Sept they actually started to grow and bloom. So I do think they like it a little cooler than what we get here in the middle of the summer. Or it could just be the variety I planted.
