Best Plants to Grow in Spring

Best Plants to Grow in Spring

Whether you're looking to get healthy, get back to nature, or just get outside, growing a garden is one of the best spring activities to help cross all of those goals off your list at once. From yard cleanup to spring planting, March, April, and May are the perfect times for turning your outdoor space into an oasis. Here at CreditBox, we've put together a list of the best plants to grow in the spring, including what you need to do to get started.

 

Best Vegetables for Spring Planting 

Many people are getting back to their roots and growing vegetable gardens in their own backyards. If you're starting in early spring, you'll want to stick to hardy spring vegetables. If you're planting in late spring, you can stick to veggies that prefer warmer weather — as long as your last frost has passed.  

 

Hardy spring vegetables include the following: 

 

      Spinach, kale, most lettuces and greens 

      English peas

      Broccoli

      Cauliflower 

      Cabbage

      Kohlrabi

      Radishes

 

For late spring, once the risk of frost has passed and temperatures are consistently over 65 degrees Fahrenheit, you can plant these summer vegetables: 

 

      Tomatoes

      Cucumbers

      Green beans

      Melons

      Sweet potatoes

      Summer squash

      Okra

      Peppers

      Corn 

 

Best Flowers and Flower Bulbs for Spring Planting 

If you're planning a little yard cleanup and need some help beautifying your space, you may want to add some flowers. Add the following flower bulbs and seeds to your spring activities to-do list to give your curb appeal a little boost:  

 

      Daffodils

      Hyacinths 

      Primrose 

      Crocus 

      Tulips

      Camellias

      Rhododendron

 

Tips and Hints for Spring Planting  


      If you don't have the patience to wait for seeds and flower bulbs to grow, check out your local big box hardware store or nursery for plants that have already started growing. You'll find a mix of beautiful blooms and spring vegetables to get you through the season.   

      Don't underestimate the need for a good yard cleanup. Getting rid of old plants and weeds before you start your garden should be number one on your list of spring activities. It'll help you maintain your space for the rest of the year. 

      Not all dirt is the same. Test your soil's pH to see how healthy it is. Adding organic matter and manure throughout the year is a good way to improve the nutrients.

      Make sure you have the right tools: shovels, hoes, trowels, mulch, fertilizer, a good water hose, and gloves. Gardening with quality equipment makes the job so much easier.
