While not totally foolproof, certain plants are ideal for gardening neophytes who want to increase their chances of gardening success.

Here’s a list of the top 10 easiest vegetables you can grow, regardless of skill level or age.

1. Carrots

Find a plot of soil (or a deep pot) that is free from rocks and deep enough to handle this root vegetable. Rocky soil can result in crooked carrots that, while perfectly edible are not the most aesthetically pleasing. Carrots are ready for harvest when their tops breach the soil line.

2. Green Beans

There are many different kinds of beans, but “broad beans” are one of the easiest vegetables to cultivate. Bush beans are more productive, but broad beans are easier to manage. Pole beans, while easy to grow, also need a trellis.

Watch the bees pollinate their pretty flowers and before you know it you will be harvesting a bumper crop of fresh picked beans from June onwards, with a flavour that puts supermarket beans to shame.

3. Lettuce

Crunchy fresh leaves with a fantastic range of textures and flavours. A salad fresh from your yard is unbeatable! Luckily, lettuce–a vast category of plants that includes microgreens , head lettuces, leaf lettuces, spinach, and arugula–is an easy plant to grow and maintain.

4. Cucumbers

If you let them, cucumber plants will sprawl, so provide your plants with ample space to stretch their roots. Try smaller varieties to make your own homemade pickles! Be sure to avoid planting cucumbers until all danger of frost has passed.

5. Spinach

Spinach is remarkably high in iron and is a wonderful addition to salads, omelets, and soups. You can pick it continuously once its leaves are of a reasonable size to encourage new growth.

6. Tomatoes

With a little water and a lot of sun, tomato plants will grow and fruit all summer long! Tomatoes are fragrant and nutrient-rich, and nothing can beat the taste of a freshly picked homegrown tomato!

7. Radishes

Radishes are ideal for beginner gardeners. Plant seeds directly into the garden in early spring or fall for a peppery addition to your favorite salads. Scarlet Globe is one easy option.

8. Bell Peppers

Like tomatoes, starter bell pepper plants are widely available at nurseries and home improvement stores. They make a crunchy additive to salads, add a pop of color to soups, and act as a nutritious compliment to kabobs.

9. Summer Squash

Squash is a high yielding plant, so you will probably only need a few plants to feed an entire family.

Squash plants dislike the wind, so be sure that your plot has some protection. Harvest when the plants are about 8-10 inches long.

10. Basil

You can grow basil in pots or in the ground—even indoors on a sunny windowsill. Sow seeds directly into the garden in a sunny, well-drained area.

When the leaves reach a desirable size, just pluck them from the plant and wait as the basil continues to provide fragrant and flavorful leaves that you can also dry and use long after summer is past.

Recommended planters:

It becomes very important to select the planters wisely according to available space, the plants we grow or the colours of one’s choice.

Buy ready to use nutrient rich soil:

Buy nutrient rich soil | Buy Fertilizers >>

In general use a soil-based compost placed over a generous layer of drainage material such as earthenware crocks, pebbles or gravel. Water and feed regularly, especially while plants are bearing flowers and fruit, when a high-potash fertilizer is recommended.

Buy Decorative Pebbles :

Decorate planters or garden landscapes with these decorative pebbles :
