The only thing I hate with Nasturtium is the fact they get yellow leaves so easily.

We had heaps of it growing in a rock garden only a fence many years ago in our first house we lived in. Vowed after that never to have it again.

Though you can eat it in salads and the flowers are pretty.

some of the old cottage pot-herbs like calendula and nasturtium will self-seed and keep on growing.

regular coriander is a right royal pain to grow like you say no sooner than it's reasonable it's at seed. I gave up growing that or attempting to grow that a while back now.

1 herb that can be very frustrating to grow is regular coriander, no sooner then it gets a reasonable size, it then starts going to seed.
I have started growing the sawtooth, Asian or Mexican, perennial coriander.
