Easiest Beautiful Flowers You Can Grow

sunflowersBeginner gardeners can enjoy a colorful and fragrant outdoor space right from the get-go with this list of 18 beautiful flowers that are easy to grow, survive anything and need next-to-no care!

# Sunflowers

Few flowers embody the very essence of summer quite like the spectacular sunflower!

Growing to between 6 and 16 feet tall, depending on the variety, the annual sunflower is a surprisingly undemanding plant. Simply sow the seeds in a sunny, sheltered spot – providing supports for the stems to prevent breakage.

The hardy sunflower does well in most soil types (except soil that is water-logged) and most varieties are tolerant to heat and drought.

Sunflowers attract bees and birds and will provide you with a bounty of seeds that are high in many essential nutrients like Vitamins E and B1, magnesium and selenium.

# Lavender

Lavender is a hardy plant that doesn’t require a whole lot of care once established – just one of the many reasons to grow this calming purple flower in your garden. Keep in mind that lavender thrives in sunshine and dry soil, meaning under watering or drought isn’t an issue.

There are several varieties of lavender so make sure you choose one that’s right for your climate.

# Fuchsias

These beautiful and easy to grow plants bring a burst of color to the garden. With so many cultivars to choose from, you’ll have no problem finding one that suits your climate – even those experiencing minus temperatures can grow the ‘Molonae’ fuchsia!

To keep a healthy looking plant, grow it in a shady location and prune back weak and dead growth every so often to encourage new blooms.

# Pansies

Pansies are garden favorites precisely because they are so easy to nurture – and come highly recommended for beginner gardeners.

To make their care even easier, purchase these bright and beautiful flowers as bedding plants and transplant them directly into the ground. From then on out, they only require a minimum amount of attention to thrive.

The pansy likes rich, well-drained soil, and full sun or partial shade. Deadheading the withered flowers is a must to encourage greater growth.

# Nigella

Also known as Love-in-a-Mist because of its tangle of fern-like foliage around the flower, the nigella requires minimal maintenance, although it is a short lived plant. However, it self-sows freely so you can enjoy continuous blooms once the seeds have scattered adequately.

Because it adapts to a variety of soil conditions, it’s relatively easy to grow almost anywhere. Once established, it isn’t usually bothered by pests. For best results, sow your nigella seeds directly in the ground, in full sun to partial shade.

# Lupines

Available in a variety of colors, and growing up to four feet tall, lupines are an attractive way to add color and texture to any garden bed.

Growing lupines is simple! Plant seeds or cuttings in a sunny area with average but well-drained soil. They do best in an area which hasn’t been amended by the application of compost or fertilizers.

These beautiful plants – a type of legume – produce seeds which will re-produce more flowers in subsequent years if not removed from the growing lupine.

# Calendula

One of the easiest annual flowers to grow from seed, calendula or pot marigold, is a bright and beautiful addition to any garden. You can also use your calendula plant to make a healing and soothing cream.

It adapts well to a wide range of growing conditions – thriving in USDA Zones 2 to 8 as a summer season plant and as an all-round bloomer in hotter zones.

Calendula tolerates any type of soil, although it must drain well and this self-seeding plant prefers full sun to partial shade.

# Ornamental Alliums

An unusual yet beautiful bloom, it’s difficult to believe that the ornamental allium is related to humble onions andgarlic.

These easy-to-grow bulbs come in a broad palette of colors, heights and bloom times. Ornamental alliums are hardy and undemanding – although they should be grown in a sunlit area. They aren’t fussy about soil type, as long as it is well-drained; they don’t requirement much space and, best of all, they are relatively resistant to deer, voles, chipmunks and rabbits!

Some of the most beautiful varieties of ornamental alliums are the ‘Everlasting’ and the ‘Schubert’ – both of which resemble exploding fireworks.

# Dianthus

With over 300 varieties of dianthus – including Sweet William, pinks, and carnations – you’re sure to find one you love. One of the best flowers for a fragrant garden, many types of dianthus boast a sweet and spicy smell similar to cinnamon or clove.

You can source hardy annual, biennial or perennial dianthus varieties. They should be planted in full sun, with well-drained soil. Easily grown from seed, the dianthus responds well to midwinter sowing and the seedlings never suffer from shock, no matter how roughly handled!

# Hardy Geranium

With approximately 500 species of geraniums worldwide – thriving on every continent – there is a hardy geranium for every climate type.

The hardy geranium is resistant to pests and disease, although they require well-drained, fertile and moist soil. They prefer morning and afternoon sun, and can handle partial shade well.

Because they are so successful as a weed-suppressing ground cover due to the large quantities of flowers they produce, a mid-season cut back is a good idea.

Hardy geraniums are easy to grow from seed and even easier to cultivate from bare roots!

# Cosmos

These tall, frilly annuals – which blossom in an array of colors – are one of the easiest flowers to grow from seed.

Cosmos look beautiful in borders or containers and they attract all manner of pollinators to the garden. What’s more, they make for stunning floral arrangements.

They prefer moist, well-drained soil that isn’t too rich, although they can grow in pretty poor soils too! Heat and drought tolerant, the cosmos can grow anywhere between 18 and 60 inches tall depending on the variety.

When growing from seed, it can take seven weeks until the flowers first appear, after which they will continue to bloom until the next frost.

# Nasturtium

The quick growing and colorful nasturtiums can be sowed directly into the ground. Soaked seeds will germinate quickly, and do well in even poor soil.

The only thing this low maintenance plant will ask of you is regular hydration – let the soil dry between waterings, although the plant shouldn’t be parched.

Nasturtiums look lovely in containers and window boxes, but they also make great ground cover in borders and beds.

Best of all, the entire plant is edible! Similar to watercress, the flowers have a peppery flavor, while the leaves can be used in salads and the seeds can be pickled like capers.

# Sweet Pea

The beautifully scented sweet pea makes a wonderful addition to any garden, particularly as it requires so little care once established.

Seed germination can be a little tricky, but soaking the seeds before planting will see them quickly sprout. Of course, an even easier option is to purchase your sweet peas as plug plants.

Sweet peas like cool, but not cold, temperatures with their heads in the sun and their roots in cool, moist and alkaline soil.

The cut flowers look simply beautiful when displayed in the kitchen or living room.

# Bachelor’s Button

A hardy, intensely blue wildflower, the Bachelor’s Button is low maintenance and thrives in poor, dry soil.

Sow this drought tolerant annual in early spring, after the last frost. It usually reseeds itself coming back year after year. Plant it in a position where it’s sure to receive morning sunlight, but partial shade during hot afternoons.

Bachelor’s Button doesn’t require too much in the way of watering – it becomes weak and floppy in soggy soil, and can also suffer stem rot and mildew. For a longer blooming season, pinch off wilted heads.

# Californian Poppy

Californian poppies are beautiful bright annuals in reds, oranges and yellows, which thrive in poor, dry or sandy soil and full sun.

They deal well with droughts, so watering will never be an issue. In fact, all you need to do with this incredibly low maintenance plant is to scatter the seeds directly on the soil and watch them thrive!

Californian poppies are also self-seeding so you can enjoy an effortless burst of color year after year, although you may want to deadhead a certain portion of the flowers to maximize blooming.

# Marigold

Marigolds enjoy their popularity precisely because they are so very easy to grow. Their wide range of colors also helps matters of course – you’ll find them in white, yellow, orange, red and mixed colors.

From miniatures to giant varieties, there is a myriad of marigold varieties so you can select the color and size that is perfect for your flower or container garden.

Marigolds grow quickly from seed. Sow them directly after the last frost in full sunlight (or up to a maximum of 20% shade). They are tolerant of dry, sandy soil, but don’t like to be overly damp.

Pinching young plants encourages a fuller shape.

# Morning Glory

For a hardy, quick growing vine that requires little care, choose the morning glory! These annuals are self-seeding so you can enjoy them for years to come with minimal effort on your part.

Perfect for covering walls and trellis, these beautiful purple, red, pink or blue flowers flourish in full sun and moist, well-drained soil. Direct sow the morning glory after the last frost date (soaking the seeds overnight first).

# Dahlias

Growing the beautiful dahlia is a piece of cake! These colorful spiky flowers – grown from small tubers planted in the spring – generally bloom from mid-summer to the first frost.

Dahlias thrive is most climates although they don’t do so well in extremely hot and humid regions. They like sunny positions, particularly morning sun, growing more blooms with 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight daily. Rich, well-drained soil with a slightly acidic pH will see your stunning dahlias flourish.

Know the Fastest Growing Veggies You Can Harvest

sunflower-shootsJust because vegetable gardening is usually an exercise in patience doesn’t mean you can’t grow fast food. For all the keen and restless gardeners out there who can’t stand the long wait for fresh produce, we’ve gathered up some of the fastest growing foods for you to enjoy on the quick.

# Sunflower Shoots – 12 Days

The product of extremely immature sunflowers, sunflower shoots (or sunflower greens or sunflower sprouts) may be tiny but they sure pack a wallop in terms of nutrition! Harvest by cutting the stems once they have two leaves, but before they show their “true leaves” because sunflower shoots become bitter as they age.

# Garden Cress – 14 Days

Ready to harvest in as little as two weeks, garden cress can be planted in early spring – as soon as the soil can be worked. Also a garden space-saver, a small (1 or 2 feet square) patch of cress will supply you will an abundance of this tangy herb.

# Radishes – 21 Days

A cool season crop, spring radishes grow best in 50⁰F to 65⁰F weather. Once sown, you’ll see leafy green shoots above the soil in just three or four days. Keep planting seeds every week or two for a constant harvest through spring and autumn.

# Green Onions – 21 Days

Also called scallions, green onions are quick-growing plants that can be cut back to their base again and again throughout the season. Once their green shoots reach a height of 6 inches, they are ready for the first round of harvesting.

# Tatsoi – 25 Days

A low-growing mustard green, tatsoi (pronounced “taht-SOY”) is a wonderful addition to salads and soups. Baby tatsoi leaves can be harvested when they reach 4 inches in length, or you can wait the full 40 days for tatsoi to mature to full size.

# Lettuce – 30 Days

Another cool-weather vegetable that prefers temperatures between 60⁰F and 70⁰F, lettuce seeds should be sown in early spring and late summer. Of the five types of lettuce – loose-leaf, cos, crisphead, butterhead, and stem – leaf lettuce varieties like green leaf and red leaf are among the easiest to cultivate and are more tolerant of hot weather. Planting new seeds every 14 days will provide a continuous harvest.

# Spinach – 30 Days

Able to survive in temperatures as low as 15⁰F, spinach is a cold hardy vegetable that can be planted as soon as the ground thaws. Pluck outer spinach leaves from the plant as it grows or re-sow seeds every two weeks for successive harvests. Don’t wait too long to gather spinach because its leaves will become bitter once the plant reaches maturity.

# Arugula – 30 Days

Since arugula seeds germinate well in cooler soil, they can be planted as soon as the garden bed can be worked after the spring thaw. Sow seeds every two to three weeks for continuous harvesting.

# Kale – 30 Days

A “cut-and-come-again” plant, kale’s young and tender leaves can be culled continually throughout the growing season once the plant is about 2 inches tall. Avoid picking the central bud, since this keeps kale growing and productive.

# Bok Choy – 30 to 45 Days

Bok choy – also known as pak choy and Chinese cabbage – is a cool weather vegetable that is best planted in spring and fall. Baby leaves can be harvested in a month, or you may wait a couple more weeks for full-sized bok choy heads.

# Turnips – 30 to 55 Days

Ready to harvest in less than two months when grown for its large bulbs, gardeners can also choose to pluck turnips from the soil early for a sampling of tender, sweet, mild-tasting roots. When turnip greens reach a diameter of about 2 inches, they can be topped as well and added to fresh salads.

# Beets – 35 to 60 Days

With edible bits above and below the soil, red beet cultivars produce nutritious greens that are ready to be picked about a month after sowing. Beet leaves can be eaten raw or cooked, but only snip off a leaf or two from each plant so as not to impede root production. When beet shoulders begin to protrude from the soil, after another month, it’s time to pull the plant from the ground.

# Zucchini – 40 to 50 Days

A true bumper crop, a single zucchini plant will produce between 6 to 10 pounds of fruit each season. Once zucchini begins to flower, fruits will be ready to harvest in about 4 to 8 days. For fast results, plant “Eight Ball”, “Seneca”, “Gold Rush”, or “Spacemiser” varieties.

# Bush Beans – 40 to 55 Days

A good choice for the beginner gardener, bush beans are low maintenance and easy to grow. Unlike pole bean varieties, they do not require the support of a stake or trellis, and will spread up to two feet. Plant new seeds every two weeks for staggered harvests.

# Broccoli Rabe – 40 to 60 Days

A distant cousin to broccoli proper, rapini – or broccoli rabe – is actually closer to the turnip and mustard families. With leafy shoots surrounding a cluster of green buds on thick stems, all parts of broccoli rabe are edible and can be eaten raw in salads, sautéed with garlic and oil, or boiled in soups. Plant “Quarantina” or “Sessantina” varieties for a quicker harvest.

# Swiss Chard – 45 Days

A member of the beet family, Swiss chard can be harvested throughout the season by cutting off the outer leaves when they are about 3 inches long and are still young and tender. In addition to using the fresh leaves in salads, you can cut Swiss chard stems from the leaf and cook them like you would asparagus.

# Baby Carrots – 50 Days

Pint-sized varieties like “Little Finger” and “Thumbelina” are faster growing than other carrot cultivars, and because of their short stature, they can be easily grown in a container garden.

# Cucumber – 50 Days

Since cucumbers become bitter with age, it’s best to pick them while they are immature, and well before they begin to yellow. Faster growing varieties include fresh slicing types like “Bush Crop”, “Straight 8”, and “Sweet Success” as well as pickling cultivars such as “Bush Pickle”, “Carolina”, and “Calypso”. Be sure to harvest cucumbers frequently as leaving the fruit on the vine (or bush) will exhaust the plant and slow the production of new cukes.

Mistakes In The Vegetable Garden

vegetable-gardenMany of us set out to grow vegetables with visions of gathering ruby red tomatoes and plump capsicums by the basketful and the choicest cucumbers and crunchy carrots going straight from the garden into the salad bowl. Growing food is a worthy goal by any measure, but disappointments are all too common. Check out whether your vegetable garden is failing because of these common mistakes.

# Starting out without a plan

Many of us start the vegetable garden on a sudden impulse. Triggers may be an article on GMO foods or the dangers of pesticide laden food. Tasting homegrown fare at a friend’s house or a single tomato plant that sprouted among your flowers and produced plenty of tomatoes with absolutely no attention from you may inspire you to start a veggie patch. But starting a garden without proper planning and preparation is like building a house without a blueprint.

Vegetable gardening is quite demanding. Know your limits as to the time, effort, inputs, and space you can dedicate to it. If you start too big you may find it hard to manage. If you grow veggies that you don’t really care for, you may soon lose interest in them altogether. Skipping the preparatory steps like reading up on the cultural needs of different crops,  testing the soil and amending it, starting seeds early, installing cold protection, windbreaks etc., can lead to almost certain failure.

# Selecting unsuitable varieties

If you go ‘catalog shopping’ for vegetable seeds, it may be one big mistake you’re committing. Even veteran gardeners fall for the beautiful pictures and too- good-to-be-true descriptions of new hybrids and heirloom varieties offered in plant catalogs. While there’s every chance that they could be exaggerating the positives, even the most legit claims can be of no use to you if the variety or cultivar turns out to be unsuitable for your climate and growing conditions. Exotic ornamentals may be fun to grow, but exotic vegetables are not really worth your time and effort.

There’s no harm in experimenting with a few new varieties that seem to be promising, as long as they are suitable for your USDA Zone. But stick to your local sources for the bulk of your vegetable seeds and starts. Established nurseries and garden centers in your area almost always carry the varieties that grow well there, but the same cannot be guaranteed about Home Depot, Lowe’s, and such chain stores. Garden fairs and sales put up by local farms are a great way to explore the possibilities and meet up with fellow gardeners who can give you invaluable inputs.

# Choosing the wrong spot

You can probably find ornamentals that fit any given spot, be it in the sun or shade. But vegetables are more demanding; you must offer them prime areas in your garden.

Plenty of sun is a must. Most fruiting vegetables need a minimum of 6-8 hours of sunlight to do well. Root vegetables may manage with 4-6 hours of full sun and partial shade for the remaining period. If your garden gets only filtered light for most part of the day, leafy vegetables are your best bet.

The vegetable garden should be located as far away as possible from trees. Apart from the shade they cast, their strong roots will compete for water and nutrients. Rotting leaves can make the soil too acidic too. If the ground is filled with roots, rocks and compacted soil that impede root run, grow vegetables in raised beds with loamy soil and good quality compost. Vegetables don’t do well in highly exposed areas like the slope of a hill where constant wind can trouble the plants, unless you provide wind screens for protection.

# Not preparing the soil

Soil preparation is extremely important because your plants are going to get their nutrients from the soil. Most vegetables don’t do well in extremely acidic or alkaline soils. They struggle in poor soils too. The pH of the soil and mineral content should be tested and amended suitably. Sandy soils will not provide sufficient nutrients and clayey soil is prone to compaction and does not allow good root run and drainage. Both can be normalized to a great extent by adding plenty of organic matter.

Ample moisture in the soil is necessary for a successful vegetable garden, but the soil should have good drainage. You can always provide extra water, but you’d be hard-pressed to find vegetables that put up with wet feet, the rare exceptions being taro, arrowhead, and watercress. If you have clayey soil that holds on to too much water, use raised beds, straw bales or containers. In low-lying areas, increase drainage by digging ditches or making a dry stream bed to redirect the water.

# Planting at the wrong time

Spring is the main planting season for most vegetable crops, but the exact timing depends on their cold hardiness. Some can go into the soil as soon as it thaws, but heat-loving vegetables like tomatoes may fail to take off if planted before it is warm enough. Some vegetables like lettuce should be started indoors well in advance because they will become bitter or perish if it gets too warm.

You can find general guidelines based on USDA Zones and first and last frost dates, but they are nothing more than guidelines. It is best to follow the planting schedule for your area, usually available from garden centers.

# Underwatering and overwatering

Vegetables need a good supply of water; it is essential for the transport of nutrients, manufacture of food through photosynthesis and its distribution to all parts of the plant. Frequent wilting will make the plants weak; it will not only affect yield, but make the plants susceptible to diseases. Different crops need different amounts of water, so this should be taken into consideration while planning the beds.

While underwatering can result in poor yield, overwatering can kill plants with root rot, especially if the soil has poor drainage. In well-draining soils it can flush out soil nutrients. Excess moisture in the soil can create high humidity in the air and invite fungal diseases too. Deep watering at longer intervals is better than frequent shallow watering. It promotes deep root run and toughens the plants.

Allowing weeds to thrive

Weeds steal the water and nutrients meant for your veggies. They have such vigorous root systems and fast growth rates that they can crowd out your plants in no time. Do thorough weeding before planting and continue to wage a war on them.

Stay clear of herbicides, though. The main benefit of growing your own vegetables is that you get to eat toxin-free food. Thick mulching around the plants helps control them. Drip irrigation also helps.
