You in all their shapes all their Different nutritional properties Etc but What we did is we strived to provide you With basic information about each plant To start you out on your growing journey And from here you’re going to want to Research more about your specific Varieties and adjust soil where you need To to maximize yield so let’s go ahead And jump into the document I’m going to Switch over to my desktop show you this Document that’s again it’s in the Description comment section I’ll pin a Link to it and you can grab this and do With it as you please but what you’re Going to see is the First Column which Is the vegetable so we are you know you Already you’re clear on that right Amaranth artichoke asparagus beans Etc So you can go through and sort and find Which one you want all right so let’s Jump over to the second column botanical Name this is the most common Latin name For the plant specific cultivars will Vary and this is for your further Research but also to help you understand That bok choy brussels sprouts cabbages Cauliflower broccoli Collard greens and turnips are all Actually in one big family and as such Most of their care and maintenance are Similar now the next one is Zone range Let me hop over here this is column C in This spreadsheet Zone range is a far

Extremes of the temperature zones for The plant could you grow plants in zone 1 or 13 sure but you would have to Modify the environment these zono ranges Are for plants outside now a quick note About figuring around figuring out your Zone a plant hardiness Zone let’s hop Over here we’ll talk about ideal zones In just a second I won’t get ahead of Myself but a plant hardiness zone is a Geographic area defined mainly by a 10-year average minimum temperature some Zone calculations also consider other Factors and the most commonly used Hardiness skill in America is the United States Department of Agriculture skill It ranges on a scale from 0 to 13. and Again I’ll link to it in a document that I’ll post below again don’t worry about Having to write all this down all of This will be in I’ve got two documents Actually one is a spreadsheet another is A document that supports everything I’m Explaining here but again you’re going To need to go through and find your Zone There’s a link in that document that Will show how to find your Zone also I’m Going to link to the equivalent European And other parts of the world hardiness Zone you’re going to want to look up no Matter where you are in the world what Your zone is what you know it’s going to Determine what you’re going to plan As the USDA system is based entirely on

An area’s average annual extreme minimum Temperature it’s limited in describing The full climatic conditions a gardener Would have to account for in a Particular place but it’s a good Starting point okay so let’s go over to The next column which is ideal zones This is the range where the plant Typically thrives best and may actually Exist in the wild so this is where it’s Going to do fine on its own without any Kind of intervention the next one is First plan this column tells you a Little bit about when you can plant After winter it’s your in-ground time as You might start seedlings indoor now This next column is second plan some Plants will actually allow you to plant A successive planting and this will Allow you to harvest twice typically This can only be done in warmer Hardiness zones where the growing period Is longer and in many cases a second Planting is not possible or the plant is Perennial and not completely harvested The next one is maturity and this is a Minimum date before any Harvest can Occur plants even within the same Species may vary in their maturity dates Some plants can be harvested earlier Like zucchini or some of the leaves may Be harvested as well now this next Column is calories per cup of vegetable Fruit and this too can be it can vary by

Plant so for example you know eggplant Is going to give you roughly 20 calories Per cup again you can see that some of These have a lot and some not so much so If you’re looking at a plant from a Survival perspective calories is going To be important this next column is Yield from four plants and this is the Expected Harvest from four plants with Average to high production now this does Not include edible greens unless Specified all right let’s go over to the Next column and let me just move this Over here this is estimated calories at Four plants and this is the expected Calories that you can Harvest on average From four of these particular plants all Right the next one up N Dash p dash K This is the suggested fertilizer ratio If you go down and you look at Fertilizer bags of fertilizer at the Store you’re going to see those three Numbers and this is a very generic Because some plants they prefer Different levels for different phases of Their growth for example Leaf production Root development fruit setting you know Etc and I would encourage you to Research your specific variety for the Details that are specific to their Variety all right well let’s go over the Next one which is size and here what I Try to do is give you a general idea of The above ground plant bush varieties

Are going to be smaller and more compact Than something like a Vine variety all Right let’s go over to water water is The per week average you’re going to Note that some plants like that amount Of water once per week and some like a Steady moisture level now most Vegetables require good draining soil so You have to factor that in we did a Whole video breaking down soil if you go To the library that we created for Gardening you’ll see a particular video That goes into a lot of details on soil All right next up is plant instruction This is just general notes about getting Your plants started now you’re going to See here there’s not a lot of Information but if you double click You’re going to see all that information Come out so again just be sure to double Click and you’ll see that on a lot of Columns by the way if you see that it Gets cut off just double click and you You can see all the full information all Right so let’s go to the next column Which is sun and this is the amount of Sunlight that you’re going to want on Your plant here your zone is also going To determine the ideal amount of Sunlight next up is soil PH and again Just be sure to double click on these to Get all the information now soil PH can Be adjusted our video on soil again the 1l reference I’ll post a link to it

Below that video explains some common Methods for adjusting soil PH next up is Spacing plants they need proper spacing To grow in their environment some plants Can be grown randomly While others Prefer rows all right now this uh next Last column is notes and these are General notes about this plant now There’s a lot of information in some of These so again just be sure to double Click to pull all that information out And uh the last one is further Information so if you want to dig into Any of these particular plants you know Like eggplant we went we found what we Think is good resources for you that you Can go and study more about eggplants so Again just go through here and click on Any of those links there’s also a second Document I mentioned a few times through The video there’s a spreadsheet that’s One document and then we also give you a Break down of everything that I just Explained the video in that document we Have a section where we provide a Glossary of terms that will provide you With additional information hopefully This video it gave you enough Information to get you started with Choosing the right seeds to plant this Gardening season with it being right Around the corner it’s time to start Preparing if you have any thoughts or Any feedback please post that in the
