This is not a climbing one, however, I found a climbing variety that I will be growing this year called "Nasturtuim Tropical Mix" which has yellow, orange and red flowers.

They will grown to about 1.8m and need treelis, wire or canes to help them climb.

They need sowing where tehy are to flower, so no transplanting, between mid-March and end of May in a Sunny position.

They flower between mid-June and end of September.

I bought these from B&Q and are Suttons seeds. I have ordered seeds from Suttons and recieved them quickly and in good condition, if you do not already have the seeds you wish to grow.

The orange one in the picture was from a packet of Suttons seeds.

Good luck, I hope your seeds do well and you get a good display.

The packet has a hint of trying the flowers in Summer salads.
