Are nasturtiums and geraniums related? I am intolerant to geraniums and want to plant nasturtiums

Hi and welcome to NGA!

No they aren't. Nasturtiums are in the plant family of Tropaeolaceae and Geraniums, Geraniaceae.
"The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country. "

Nasturtium's 👍 Good choice.😀😋 Hurray!
Easy to rip out if you get tired of them ! Of course, that's a big IF ? Rolling on the floor laughing

Plant lots. Flowers are edible. YES !
Decorate top of salads, or anything with petals. They have just a little peppery taste. Impress your guests. They'll all say : What's this ? 👍😀

I believe leafs are edible also.

I have some growing right now.

Gee ?🤔??? I don't know why I haven't grown any in the past few years ??? D'Oh!

There perennial in some places.

Do ! Read up on them !
Bye bye 😎😎😎
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.
