The Easiest Vegetables to Grow at Home

Interest in the crops themselves continues to grow and growing tasty and healthy fruits and vegetables at home is easier than ever.

In brief

The good news is that you don't need a vegetable garden, as even a small vegetable garden or a few pots in the yard can grow a wide variety of home-grown vegetables.

Although most vegetables are reasonably easy to grow, you may be wondering which are the easiest to start with. We are often asked if we can list the easiest ones, so here are our 10 easiest and most mandatory items in the garden.

Getting started

To keep things easy and straightforward, it's best to focus on vegetables that can be sown directly where they are to be harvested. Chopped salad leaves are ideal as they can be harvested as needed to provide a succession of leaves for several weeks after planting.

Many salad crops, especially radishes and lettuces, are difficult to beat due to the speed from seed to harvest. They can also be used as 'catch crops', grown among other long-term crops to make the most of space.

Many vegetables are attractive and ornamental in their own right, so they can be grown alongside their flowers in flower beds and flower beds.

Container cropping

All of these, as well as almost every other vegetable, can be grown in containers on the patio or anywhere else in the garden. That means you can walk out the back door and pick up the freshest, tastiest veggies ever!

Top 10 easiest vegetables to grow

  • Beetroot: Sow at intervals from mid-March. Harvest from 11 weeks after sowing.
  • Broad beans: Best sown in spring. Dwarf varieties need less space and no staking. Harvest around 14 weeks from sowing.
  • Courgettes and Marrows: Sow outdoors once the soil has warmed up from May to the end of June. Compact, bushy varieties are better for small areas and containers. Harvest from 10-14 weeks from sowing.
  • Cut-and-come-again salad leaves: Thin out plants to use in the kitchen, then keep cutting. Harvest from 6-8 weeks after sowing.
  • French beans: Sow outdoors once the soil has warmed up from May to the end of June. Harvest 8-12 weeks from sowing.
  • Lettuce: Small lettuces, such as Tom Thumb or Little Gem, take up less room and there is less wastage. Harvest from 8-14 weeks after sowing.
  • Potatoes: Early varieties are the best and give that new potato taste. Plant seed potatoes from mid-to late March for first earlies, early to mid-April for second earlies. Harvest in 12-14 weeks.
  • Radishes: Sow fortnightly from March to June for a continuous crop. Harvest from 3-4 weeks after sowing.
  • Runner beans: Sow outdoors once the soil has warmed up from May to the end of June. Harvest 12-14 weeks from sowing.
  • Shallots: Plant shallot sets in February or March. Sets are quick to mature, producing a further 8 to 12 shallots each. Ready to harvest in 18 weeks.

Expensive vegetables that you can grow at home

When space is an advantage, it is generally a good idea to focus on vegetables that are expensive to buy. Below is our list of the ones that are cheap and easy to grow, but end up being expensive to buy in stores:

  • Broad beans
  • French beans
  • Runner beans
  • Beetroot
  • Broccoli (purple and white sprouting, calabrese)
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Courgettes
  • Leeks

  • Lettuce
  • Peas (especially mangetout)
  • Radishes
  • Salad leaves
  • Salad onions
