Easily available seeds to grow plants at home

Updated on August 18, 2015

Gardening is one of such hobby which not only provides happiness and satisfaction but also brings you with good health and quality to your food. Here are some of the plants that can be grown easily at home. You just need to have the seeds, water and soil in pots or open space with proper sunlight.

Coriander Seeds

Coriander leaves are one of a kind of herbs which is used very commonly in many recipes and in salad as well. To grow these at home few things needs to be taken care. Coriander seeds need to be crushed a little before these are sowed in the soil. Wrap these seeds in tissue paper and gently press and rub these seeds. Ideally these seeds should divide in two halves after rubbing. Now you can sow them with a layer of soil over the seeds. Do not put lots of water in the pot otherwise the seeds will get destroyed. Just sprinkle little water over them daily.

Fenugreek Seeds

Fenugreek seeds are good to alleviate the acidity and many other digestive problems. It's leaves are used to add taste in many recipes, especially the cottage cheese recipes.

Fenugreek seeds can also be easily grown in pots with soil. Soak the seeds in water for one day and then put these in soil. Within few days, seedlings will come out .These seeds need enough sunlight and regular watering.

Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin seeds are the most easy to grow plants and grow very fast. These plants need lots of space as their vines spread in large area but if you don’t have much space then also you can plant these seeds where the vines can get support to grow in upward direction. I tied the long vine with the stand of the shelf and it continued to grow.

To grow these plants, sow the pumpkin seeds in the soil and water these seeds properly so the soil remain moist. Within few days, u will see plant growing out of the seed. Keep the pot in proper sunlight.

Spring Onions

Spring onions are used in many recipes and can be eaten raw as salad also. These are also very easy to grow. Either sow its seeds or you can reuse the spring onion bulb to grow more. I found the second method easier. Just bring one set of spring onion and cut the green stem leaving half inch of it. Then sow the white bulb of spring onion into the soil with the green stem part above the soil. Keep the pot in a place where these plants can get enough sunlight and also water these plants daily. Soon new green stems will grow.

You can trim and use the green stems many times. These will grow again soon.

      Thanks Thumbi

      Initially coriander did not work for me also.Later I realized my mistakes i.e. I did not crush the seeds properly and had put excess of water over the seeds as a result the seeds got destroyed.

      I was never lucky at coriander seeds. Pumpkin plants are grown out of seeds. But I never got a pumpkin on them

      We plant seed every year for a garden. This year we planted butter beans, okra, tomatoes, collards turnips, peas and peppers. Everything turn more than 3 folds. Oh, the string beans harvested the most turn out. The tomatoes didn't do so good.
