There seems to be black egg like things under the leaves. Should they be there what are they?

Probably black fly. Squirt them off with the hose. Especially if you're planning to put the nasturtiums in a salad. grin

I deliberately plan nasturtiums with my runner beans...as then the blackfly go on the nastutiums and leave my beans alone!!!

so i bet they are blackfly.

I'd blast them with the hose too...or if like me ...you don't eat them...and do have other veggies growing that you'd rather stay free of blackfly...leave them to rest on the nasturtiums!!!!
