Easy-to-grow plants are plants that are easy to grow. This is often the result of being naturally resistant to drought, pests, temperature changes, and able to thrive on soils that vary greatly in mineral contents.
The best examples will vary depending on the location, but some suggestions include:
- Chayote fruit, shoots, young leaves and tubers; tropical and warm temperate climates.
- Winter squash/pumpkins, fruit, (leaves and shoots of some or all species? Are the flowers edible?); tropical[verification needed] and temperate climates.
- Summer squash (e.g. zucchinis, button squash); fruit and flowers; temperate.
- Fruit trees - some are very hardy and require very little maintenance after planting:
- Vines - these can be allowed to climb, and can require little maintenance.
For more helpful information, specific pages need to be developed on easy-to-grow plants by climatic zone & rainfall patterns.
- Native crops by region: some of the easiest to grow plants are native and often called "weeds" by the local population
- Community garden
- Lazy gardening
- Permanent raised bed
- I've heard they're easy, but don't know. Note that these comments can be removed once the information has been improved/corrected. --~~~
