5 Easy Plants For Gardening Novices

If the lockdown has had you venturing into the garden, and don’t know where to start, there’s a lot of online resources to help beginners.

It might be the case that before you can consider planting anything you have to tidy and rearrange your garden space, but then that leaves you free to try growing a variety of plants. We have some of the easiest for gardening beginners.

  1. Tomatoes

Tomatoes are of the best vegetables to grow for beginning gardeners. You can also grow tomatoes in hanging baskets if you live somewhere where outdoor growing space is in short supply. Just make sure that, wherever you plant them, they’ll get six hours of sunlight a day.

 

  1. Sunflowers

Sunflowers are tough plants that are heat-tolerant as well as pest-resistant. They grow quickly, so they provide exactly the kind of positive affirmation a beginning gardener needs. Their seeds are also big and easy to handle, which makes them a good seed to plant if you’re gardening with kids.

 

  1. Zinnias

Zinnias grow quickly and easily. They bloom heavily, leaving you with a very colourful plant in your backyard. You won’t be the only one attracted to your Zinnias’ colours, though, as they also attract butterflies.

 

  1.  Impatiens

Are you eager to see the fruit of your gardening labour? If so, impatiens are perfect for impatient gardeners. See what we did there?

Impatiens do best when they’re in the shade or partial shade; it’s best if you can keep them out of the full sun. To keep them as happy as possible, also keep them in moist but well-draining soil.

 

  1. Daffodils

Daffodils are hardy perennials that will grow pretty much anywhere. We suggest that you plant your daffodil bulbs in the ground in autumn, about two to four weeks before the ground freezes. And choose a place that gets a lot of sun!
