Garden plant making autumn stir (10)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

nasturtium

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'garden plant' is the definition.
'nasturtium' can be an answer for 'plant' (nasturtium is a kind of plant). I am not sure about the 'garden' bit.

'making autumn stir' is the wordplay.
'making' indicates an anagram.
'autumn'+'stir'='autumnstir'
'autumnstir' is an anagram of 'NASTURTIUM'.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for nasturtium that I've seen before include "flowering plant" , "Common trailing plant" , "ITMA's U-turn (anag) - flower" , "bloomer" , "Garden climber" .)
