Garden Plants

Plants are like humans, and each has its own personality. Some plants are quite showy and eye-catching, while others are dependable and humble. Garden plant selection is a journey of discovery. For gardeners, getting to understand the different personalities of the plants they grow is half the fun and celebration is imminent when the right plant for the right place is found. Bring your garden to life with different types of garden plants. Here are a few examples of garden plants:

Tomato

Virtually nine out of 10 American household vegetable gardens have at least one tomato plant. Tomato plant germination needs a constant soil temperature of 65 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit, and tomato seeds should be planted six to eight weeks before your area’s estimated last frost date. With these specific requirements, it is better to start indoors or contact your local gardener centre for a tomato plant.

Firstly, one pot is needed for every two seeds. Styrofoam or Plastic cups are a great option. Create a couple small holes in the bottom of each one to enable drainage and make it filled it with a right potting mix. Then, the seeds are placed about a quarter of an inch below the surface. Spray the dirt with water (make it moist, but not soggy) and retain a constant seventy to eighty-degree room temperature, and within the first ten days, the little plants will sprout. Although plenty of sunlight is needed.

The moment the plant sprout four leaves apiece, convey them into larger pots; four to six inches height containers would be perfect. In the meantime, find a sunny section of your garden a week before the last frost date, until the soil is nice and loose. Then, dig a deep trench about 6 or 8 inches. When the last frost date arrives, and the dirt has raised the temperature, throw in 3 inches of compost and cover that with some fresh soil and then transplant your seedlings in there. Tomatoes often come in different varieties which offer fruits of varying size and shape.

Mint

Mint is very easy to grow. As a matter of fact, mint does very well outdoors that the biggest challenge with mint is stopping the plant fromtaking over the whole garden. Although Mint needs moist soil with good drainage, and it does very well when kept in a location that receives a considerable amount of shade during the day.

Under its best conditions, mint stems—known as “runners”—engage in all directions. When left unchecked, the stems will take over every inch of available space. For this reason, a lot of people grow to prefer the use of clay pots because the roots cannot escape.

Potato

Find a potato tuber that has grown a few buds which are around one quarter to one-third of an inch in length. Then Cut the potato into chunks, leave at least one bud on each segment. Before you move on from that stage, supply the wedges indoors at room temperature for 48 to 72 hours.

If there are lots of space to work with, potatoes can be grown in vast lines across your backyard. But when working on a limited area, potato plants can be cultivated in bottomless half-bushel baskets. Take your basket and place it under sunlight. Fill it with loamy potting soil and bury the chunks two to four inches below the surface. Get them watered every week and they’ll be available to harvest by midsummer.

Spinach

Spinach is one of the best cold-weather crops a gardener could always ask for. Four to six weeks before the last frost date in your location, then get started with the process called priming: Soak some seeds in water for twenty-four hours. Remove and let them dry off on a paper towel for a day or two, then seal up the seeds in an airtight zip-lock bag and store them in a cold room for about one week. When the one week is up, sow the seeds in an inch of tilled soil that has a temperature below 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Its tie for harvest.

Zucchinis

Zucchinis are super easy to grow, and also very prolific. It takes just a few short weeks before your garden starts churning out enough zucchinis to feed an army. To get started, dig a row of inch-deep holes in the earth at some point between early spring and mid-summer. Space the depressions for about three feet apart, with each hole housing two or three seeds. Make sure the dirt is warm and keep it moist every time, and six to eight weeks later, the harvesting begins.

Beets

Beets are a beautiful “TWO-FER” crop —beetroots can be harvested, and of course, the greens can also be harvested, young beet greens are tasty when added to a salad raw while more abundant beet greens can be used the way other green such as spinach is used. Beetroots are high in potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron and vitamin C. To get started with beets, plant beet seeds three inches apart from each other in a pot twelve inches deep because each beet seed is a bunch of seeds in itself. Make sure the seeding is thinned to one per cluster. Beetroots are excellent when harvested small, between one or two inches. They are tender and sweeter at that size while larger beets are woody and have little or no flavour.

Leaf amaranth

Leaf amaranth is not a common vegetable, but it is well worth a try in your garden. The leaves have a slightly tangy and sweet flavour that works in a different type of dishes, from soups and stir-fries to produce steam by itself. Leaf amaranth does not tolerate heat and very high in calcium, phosphorous, iron, magnesium, potassium, riboflavin, zinc, and vitamins A, B6 and C. amazing. To get started with this, separate the tiny seeds above the soil surface in a container which is eight inches deep. The leaves are ready for harvest when they are two to four inches tall, and you could get two to three vegetable harvests before the need to sow more seeds.
