Napa and Nasturtium Recipe to Grow

One of my favorite images from the raised bed garden mainly because I can still taste the amazing salads we made with red romaine, napa cabbage and the bright orange Nasturtium blooms. Everything in this photo was grown from seed except for the napa cabbage that I bought as a start plant from a local garden center.

In this bed was also radishes, beets and various lettuces.  I shared planting day of those seeds on this blog post : Spring Planting in 4’x4′. 

Planting Recipe

  • Start the nasturtium seeds after all danger of frost as a border plant.
  • Be sure to check out what local nurseries and garden centers have in the veggie starter plant department.  I’m noticing a growing trend in oriental veggies.
  • Lettuces are easy to start from seed as long as you do it early in the season and water carefully.
  • Established plants benefit from mulch because it will help keep the plant cool and keep in moisture.
