Plants for the Lazy Gardener
It's easy to grow these carefree plants that thrive on neglect.
If there's a plant that begs to be ignored, it's nasturtium. Sown from seed as an annual in much of North America, it quickly spreads a low blanket of attractive foliage topped with cheerful flowers. Most varieties require very little water and no fertilizing. In an unusual twist, most garden pests avoid nasturtium, but the flowers, leaves, and seeds are edible. The leaves and blooms add a peppery twist to soups and salads.
