The black bits are probably some sort of aphid, squirt them with some washing-up liquid and water.

By the way, do you ever eat your nastursiums? They have a great peppery watercress flavor.

I have blasted this morning (Sat) with water and washing up liquid.I will do battle with black aphids daily.I have not tried eating them yet but i will try!

my grandfather would eat nasturtium leaves on bread. they are way too peppery for me but here in Australia, the flowers are very popular in salads.
