Great Plants for the Beginner Gardener

Great Plants for the Beginner GardenerStarting a garden can be extremely exciting, especially if you've never planted seeds before. Being able to grow food and flowers that you would normally have to buy is an incredibly enlightening and rewarding (not to mention often delicious) experience. It is important to understand your abilities though, as many plants require special care in order to yield the best results. There are many plants that are relatively easy to grow and care for, all the while still providing beauty and nutrients. If you're starting your first garden here are a few plants to consider adding to the dirt!


Flowers are great for adding color to a home or giving that special someone a nice little gift. Here's three types of flowers that are perfect for the beginning gardener.

  • Pansies - These highly versatile flowers can be grown in just about any climate. With such a wide variety of colors available you'll certainly love the vibrancy they add to your garden.
  • Sunflowers - Not only are sunflowers beautiful to look at, but they offer delicious seeds as well! Their only big need is direct sunlight, so find a sunny spot to plant them!
  • Marigolds - Marigolds are great because you essentially need to plant the seeds and let them grow, providing you with beautiful flowers from spring until fall.


It really wasn't that long ago when most families grew all of their own food. If you'd like to get back to your ancestral roots and eat from your own garden try these simple to grow veggies.

  • Tomatoes - Great for salads, pasta sauce or on their own, growing tomatoes requires minimal effort with maximum reward.
  • Zucchinis - This plant grows fast and amply. Within two months you could be growing more zucchini than you can eat. Thankfully there's plenty of dishes that call for this yummy vegetable.
  • Potatoes - The average American will consume nearly 114 pounds of potato products in a single year. May as well be eating those spuds from your own yard!
