Crops that replant themselves are a bonus for the novice gardeners. Some of the easiest plants to grow and regrow themselves are these ten plants:

  • basil
  • garlic
  • dill
  • arugula
  • mustard
  • nasturtium
  • sunflowers
  • amaranth
  • radish
  • tomatoes
  • pumpkin

Self-seeding gardens, of course, allow crops to simply grow like wild plants do. They often aren’t as tidy as conventional rows. They aren’t necessarily as precise as many of us are accustomed to. But, they can be extremely productive and a real treat for a time-strapped gardener. Of course it’s always a good idea to check and make sure you’re in the right zone for gardening any of thee plants, and knowing when the right time is to plant them.
