If you are new to gardening but are wanting to start growing some flowers in your garden, then it can be hard to know where to start. Some plants are much easier to grow than others, so have a look at the list below and then you can buy them from somewhere like this wholesale plants company Palmstead.

Chamomile – The calming taste of chamomile is enjoyed in tea to help soothe frayed nerves and promote a good night’s sleep. It is also one of the easiest plants to grow and can easily be grown from seed. Get it started off indoors in early spring and then take it out to the garden to plant in soil that drains well, in a patch where there is plenty of sun.

Holly – This native evergreen is renowned for being a festive favourite and if you want a plant that brings colour to the garden all year round then this is ideal. Use for hedging or planting around the fences to help keep intruders out! Holly is native to the UK and therefore really hardy and easy to care for and prefers damper soil.

Poppies – The sight of poppies bobbing about on a summer’s day is beautiful and there are many types of poppies that you can easily grow from seed. It is as easy as sprinkling the seeds around where you want them to grow in spring and then waiting to see them appear in the summer months. Poppies also will produce more seeds that can then be grown the following year.

Foxgloves – These beautiful woodland plants grow in tall spires and are perfect for shady areas of the garden. They are a firm favourite with bees too, so will help the local bee population, and are also attractive to butterflies, and of course they are easy to grow in the garden as long as they are in a shady or partially sunny area. Be aware that they are toxic to pets and humans.

Lavender – The smell of lavender is one that we all associate with calm and restfulness, and this is another plant that is really easy to grow and low maintenance. It is also a bee favourite and can be grown either in the soil or in pots if you prefer.
