Snap Peas are a cool-season, frost-hardy vegetable. When growing snap peas, they are meant to be harvested and eaten with both pods and peas. Loved by bunnies they are also great in salads while raw, or cooked in stir fries with other vegetables.
Growing is best when the temperature is 45 F+. Wait until you’re sure the chance of frost is past. Sow after the early spring rains. Planting seeds 1 to 1 1/2 inches deep and 1 inch apart, with 18 to 24 inches between pairs of plants or rows. Early on when growing sugar snap peas, cultivate and hoe shallowly so you don’t injure the plants.
Any sunny site with good drainage. Full sun to partial afternoon shade. Frost-tolerant, Nasturtiums may survive very light frosts, but they are easily damaged by
freezing temperatures. Single Plants: 11" each way Rows: 11” with 11" row gap
Soaking seeds in water overnight prior to planting may speed germination, but nasturtium seeds sprout best when the soil is warm. Poke seeds into the soil about 1 inch deep and 3 inches apart. Thin to 12 inches apart in all directions.
Blossoms, leaves, and immature green seed pods are edible. Gather blossoms in the morning, when they are plumped up with moisture. Snip away the base of each blossom, which may taste bitter.
