5 Easy-to-Grow Edible Plants for Your Home Garden 

Homiful.com -- Not only does it create a fresh and beautiful atmosphere, some plants also have health benefits. There is nothing wrong with starting to grow fruit plants or herbs that can be consumed. For beginners, perhaps these "5 Easy-to-Grow Edible Plants for Your Home Garden" could be the right start. Let's check it out!



Rosemary is an edible plant that may be grown in small places. It is a low-maintenance perennial herb. Stem cuttings and seeds can be used to propagate it. You can also plant it in egg cartons and then transfer it to a tray or a pot. The plant prefers an environment that is humid and warm. Water the plant lightly but consistently. Allow the soil to dry out before watering it again.



Mint is one of the most simple and quick-growing perennial herbs. Choose a small pot, ideally 8 to 12 inches in diameter, with great drainage, and grow it in a kitchen garden. Harvest the plant by snipping its sprigs when they are around 8 inches long. Mint is best propagated via plant cuttings. 

Mint prefers wet soil and partial shade. It is a resilient plant that requires minimal attention. It does, however, require regular trimming to prevent its roots from spreading into other plants.



Although its seed germinates quickly, this houseplant can also be grown from cuttings. It is an annual herb that grows best in hot, humid areas. Basil plants require moist soil and must be watered nearly every day. They can be harvested as soon as the leaves develop, or after 50 to 60 days of planting, depending on the type. 

The plant requires 6 to 8 hours of sunlight every day, thus it should be kept on a well-lit windowsill. At all times, the soil should be moist. Clip basil leaves on a regular basis to promote fuller growth.



The fruit grows well in confined settings, such as a balcony or a terrace. They do best in pots that are 18 to 24 inches broad or larger. You will have to wait 30 to 40 days after the seeds have been sown before harvesting them. Choose the best type for optimal yield and put the seeds in a high-quality soil mixture. 

Make sure the plant gets enough of direct sunlight - the tomato plant enjoys warmth. Water it on a regular basis, but don't overdo it or it may wilt. To maintain the tomato plant healthy, remove old and yellow leaves.



The evergreen plant grows easily in a backyard or a balcony garden. They thrive in warm conditions with plenty of sunlight. Lemons, which are high in vitamin C, can be used to decorate salads and prepare healthful beverages. Make sure the plant's growing container has a drainage hole. 

Because it receives the most light, the south is the best direction for lemon plants to grow. These plants require appropriate feeding on a regular basis. So, in addition to the much-needed nutrients like potassium and magnesium, remember to add compost to the soil mix every two months.
