Best Plants for Spring

Who doesn’t love seeing the first flowers of spring burst into bloom? This list of flowers, plants, and veggies will give you some great ideas to “spring” your garden into action!

Stars and Stripes

‘Stars and Stripes’ are known for drawing butterflies and hummingbirds to your garden. They can’t seem to resist their crimson flowers and rosy centers. Multi Colored greenery can add some nice contrast to your garden.

Handles the Heat

Looking for a plant that can really take the heat of summer? Think about putting ‘Azure Skies’ in your garden portfolio. It’s a surprisingly hardy, American-native flower you can safely place in full-sun areas.

Veg Out!

Herb and vegetable gardens are great candidates for spring planting. And, by the time summer rolls around, you can skip the grocery store and pluck your homegrown beauties right from the garden!

Some of the best options to plant in spring:

  • Peas
  • Beans
  • Radishes
  • Carrots
  • Lettuce
  • Swiss Chard

All these grow easily, are hardy, and require little upkeep to keep them in great shape.

Year After Year

A lot of herbs, like mint, oregano, and parsley keep growing in your garden, year after year. Make sure you choose varieties that work best in your region of the country and that overwinter well.

Get the Right Seeds

Sure, you’ll find a large variety of seeds at the store, but you’ll find even more online. Amazon, for example, has a huge number of seeds available for every climate and soil type.

Also, seeds are less expensive than plants. But know that if you don’t have a green thumb, seeds can be a bit tough to get started.

Whether you want beauty or a bounty of vegetables, any one of these plants is great candidate for your early spring garden!
