Home-grown vegetables are delicious and not hard to plant if you dedicate just a few minutes of your time every day. If you’ve been wanting to start a veggie garden for a while but don’t know where to start, let us help you.

In this post, we’ll share the best step-by-step guide for starting veggie gardens at home in any little space you have.


What Is A Veggie Garden?

A veggie garden, vegetable patch, or vegetable plot is simply a garden with the sole purpose of growing vegetables for family consumption. With just a few tools and enough space, you can start eating healthy and connect with nature uniquely and beautifully.

Making a veggie garden at home is not hard and it only requires some of your daily time to nurture the plants until they can be harvested. What’s great about veggie gardens is that you don’t need to have a lot of money to start, and the result will help with reducing your monthly expenses on vegetables as well as better your health.

In the following part, we’ll explain how to make beautiful gardens in no time and most important, successfully. 


Making Veggie Gardens

As stated above, veggie gardens are not hard to make, and if you follow these following steps we can guarantee you great success.

The first step to making a veggie garden is to choose where you want to grow your vegetables. Depending on how fast the veggies you selected grow, you can start your veggie garden on a big pot before having to transplant it to the ground. 

Here’s the rundown for choosing your spot:

    • Make sure it is a sunny spot (at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight hits there).

    • Choose a spot that drains well and doesn’t stay wet for long thus your roots might rot if they’re not properly drained.

    • Nutrient-rich soil. Pay crucial attention to the organic matter you choose to ensure your veggies can grow optimally.

Apart from this, you should decide what you want to plant and how (on containers, traditional rows on the ground, etc). If you have limited space, choose vegetables that can easily grow in reduced areas like tomatoes and leafy greens.


What You Should Have In Mind For Beautiful Veggie Gardens

For successful veggie gardens, you should do a little research about the type of vegetables you want to plant, regarding the best time to plant them, how to take care of them and when to harvest them.

Further, find where the sunlight hits your future veggie garden to plant how to organize your vegetables and ensure they have the best growing conditions possible.

Always remember that the fact that you want to start a beautiful veggie garden is already a win, so don’t get discouraged if your vegetables don’t grow as planned or something similar. Take notes of what didn’t work to try again later and not repeat the same mistakes.
