The Q&A Archives: Nasturtium Pods

Question: This is my first year growing nasturtiums in my window boxes. I have beautiful and numerous blooms. After each flower blooms and dies off, what is left is a green pod-like structure and the stem curls. What is this?

Answer: Congratulations on your success! These would be the seed pods. You can remove them to keep the plant looking tidy. Just snip with a scissors or sharp pruner.
