So what should you actually grow in your Organic Garden?
This is of course very personal, but here are some things to consider.
Grow what grows well
We already talked about the plant hardiness zones at the start of this guide. That should be your starting point. You might want to grow some nice exotic fruits and vegetables, but you might not be able to due to your climate.
Second. There are also plants that are simply easy to grow and maintain and others that are more difficult. Tomatoes need a lot of pruning for instance while lattices can attract a lot of snails in wet climates. This should not deter you from growing tomatoes, but just understand that some crops are easier than others.
Grow Annual and Perennial plants
Some plants you need to re-plant every season (annuals) while others will grow back in the next season (perennials) like trees and fruit shrubs. You might want to grow both types and maybe even grow them next to one another in a Permaculture style.
Grow what you enjoy growing and love eating
Maybe straightforward but don’t overlook the plants that you love eating and enjoy growing. Don’t simply grow vegetables to build variety even though you don’t enjoy eating them.
