Napa Cabbage and Nasturtium Growing Tips

Everything in this photo was grown from seed except for the napa cabbage that I bought as a starter plant from a local garden center.

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

The best cabbage of any variety I have ever grown has been in the dome during the winter season.  The bugs do not seem to get bother the cabbage-like they do in my raised beds outdoors.

Napa Cabbage and Nasturtium 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.
