I like this Perennial? I looked it up - its a Nasturtium? So does that mean it would do well in poor soil Andrew?

It grows from a tuber and likes moderately fertile soil in a sunny spot. It will also need winter protection in cold spots or in bad winters. I have the tuber planted underneath the prostrate conifer in the photo which gives it the protection it needs and gives it something to ramble over when in growth

Rose - my 'bible' says you should sow the seed in a cold frame as soon as it is ripe, but it also adds that germination is erratic
