Hi, I read about nasturtium VINES, but most seed info does not indicate that they actually climb, like climb a trellis. That's what I want. Can you help? Thanks.

Nasturtiums show enthusiasm for climbing if you coax the young stems soon after they sprout. If you want them to go up, provide a wire fence or a slender trellis within 2 inches of the plants? stems. After you show them the way by weaving stems into the trellis or fence for a few weeks, they should continue climbing on their own.
