Want to Start Gardening But No Sun? Try These Easy Vegetables

Bookmark

by

Do you live in an apartment with limited access to sunlight? Or the sky is too cloudy and gray these days? These 8 vegetables will still grow in such conditions:

#1

1-spinach

Spinach needs only two to three hours of sunlight to thrive. Place them on your window when the sun is shining bright.

#2

2-Broccoli

Cut off the large central head of the broccoli, and leave the plant in the ground. You will see smaller heads form along the stem in the leaf axis. Partial shade is enough for this plant.

#3

3-Cauliflower

Cauliflower can grow in partial shade in a cool area. Although, they prefer full sun.

#4

4-Lettuce

The soft and loose-leaf types will grow well under partial sunlight. Keep removing the leaves when they have enough to sustain.

#5

5.-Cabbage

Their growing requirements are similar to broccoli. They, too, thrive in cooler temperature and partial sunlight.

#6

6-Herbs

Mint, coriander, and parsley are the kind of herbs which actually prefer partial shade. They spread aggressively, and need minimum gardening requirements.

#7

7-Leeks-and-Onion

They grow well in cooler and moist environments. They need less sunlight for growth.

#8

8-Root-Vegetables

Potatoes, carrots, and beets need a little more sunlight than leafy vegetables. 4 hours of sunlight is enough for them to grow well in your garden.
