Snap Peas 

Snap peas are a delicious addition to any meal and a perfect choice for beginner gardeners. These versatile veggies are incredibly low-maintenance, making them an easy and rewarding plant to grow!

How To Start: To plant your snap peas seeds, grab some pots with drainage and fill them with moist potting mix. Place a few seeds in each pot, ensuring the soil remains moist but not overly wet. Within a few days, you’ll see those seeds sprout!

Water: Keep the soil damp and cozy! When the soil starts to look dry, it’s time to water thoroughly until you see water drip out from the bottom. 

Care Tips: Ensure your snap peas receive plenty of sunlight, though they can also tolerate partial shade. While you don’t have to fertilize them, a little extra nourishment can definitely give them a boost!

And remember! Once your plants start to grow taller, remember to give them support by adding stakes or a trellis. Easy-peasy! 😉🫛


Chamomile is a flower that’s both beautiful and beneficial. This popular herbal tea ingredient is known for its relaxing properties, making it a perfect choice if you’re looking to calm your mind. Easy to germinate, Chamomile is an excellent option and has rewarding results! 🌼🍵

How To Start: To plant your Chamomile seeds, start by filling some pots with potting mix. Place a few seeds in each pot, then lightly water the soil. 

Water: Lightly water the soil when it starts to look dry and be careful not to overwater, as chamomile is susceptible to root rot.

Care Tips: Chamomile thrives best in partial shade but can tolerate full sunlight. It prefers cool to moderate temperatures. Minimal fertilizer is needed, but a little can help it grow even better!


Flowers add a vibrant splash of colour to any living space! They are sure to bring joy when you see the first few buds appear. They are a great choice if you’re new to gardening!
