I have all kinds of stuff. Flowering plants, coleus, crotons, succulents, herbs and veggies. I love plants , period. I love fresh spinach and herbs. I love flowers so I have a few roses, geraniums, daises and stuff. Spinach and tomatoes are what I have to call veggies at the moments apart from quite a few herbs.

I have mostly this, taro in big pots. The reason I have taro more than anything else is that I think it's beautiful and it grows fast. A couple of years ago, I saw some taro just randomly growing by a canal where I go to watch the ducks. I took a small cutting home and planted it, and it grew like crazy.



This image is from Yahoo, but it looks exactly like my plants.

I have more tomato plants then anything else. We love tomatoes and wanted to try a variety of different tomatoes :) We can eat tomatoes everyday! I also have a lot of marigolds, but I think I have more tomatoes then marigolds. It is a close one tho so it may be one or the other.

When I can have a good size garden, I always plant more tomatoes than anything else too. I love garden fresh tomatoes and eat them like crazy. I like the beefsteaks and the cherry tomatoes and everything else in between.

In my vegetable garden it is tomatoes by far, I grow at least five different kinds. Green beans are number two because I can so many of them. Flower wise Its lots of different lilies, iris, and roses surrounded by tons of annuals.

All flowers, no vegetables right now. In the spring I will be creating a veggie garden. We have been working the yard to make room for a good area. It is going to have plenty of sunshine and shade that comes from a couple of giant Pines.

I am looking forward to it. We have had to remove trees, and other bush from the area we are going to use. This is at the home I will be moving into next years.

Right now I am still in an apartment, and all I have is a small outdoor flower garden.

I have more tomatoes than other vegetables. I also have several zinnias every year. I love to save their seed and replant them every year. They make such great flower arrangements in the summer.

Tomatoes are the most plentiful vegetable in my vegetable garden. I love tomatoes. Last summer, I had so many that I was able to make several batches of sauce from them.
I have a lot of roses, impatiens and petunias in my flower garden. They are all so beautiful. I love growing them.

Mint :p I had a lot of that in my garden because we used it for teas, infusion, salads and many other culinary uses. Sadly tiny red spiders invaded my dear mint plants :(

I don't have a 'garden' because I live in an apartment. But I do grow some plants - indoor and outdoor. I have more rose plants than anything else. I have some 7-8 of them in my balcony and they make me happy. :) Claudine and ScotKat I am so envious of you both. I absolutely adore Lily of the valley! Wish it grew here. :/

My garden consist mainly of roses,anthurium ,spider flower, orchid, aloe vera and my herbs such as rosemary and basil. I guess i chose these plants based on their beauty, aroma and for my herbs it would be their medicinal benefits.

Right now I have mainly lilies :p I'm not even supposed to have them because I'll be moving soon, any day now, but I really don't know what to do with my lovely calla lilies! I think I'll not be able to take the bulbs with me, so I will have to make the huge decision and give it away to someone...

I definitely grow the most amount of tomatoes, cucumbers and zucchini in my garden. I feel these are some of the easiest vegetables to grow. I also LOVE these vegetables so I use them all summer long. I freeze a lot of tomatoes (puree) at the end of the season and make pickles from cucumbers so they don’t go to waste. I would love to grow more colorful peppers but I’m not always successful.

The most number of plants is our garden is ginger. It used to be lemon but we have only just 3 plants now. Some died of old age maybe and some perished from neglect - that's what happens when we go on vacation, the housemaid forgets to water the plants. With ginger, we have more than 10 of it in different locations that we harvest one by one for use in cooking. That way, we never run out of ginger.

While I do flowering plants like bougainvilleas, lilacs and rose what I have most are edible plants like rosemary, thyme and parsley. What I have in abundance though are basils because they seem to grow anywhere and I have them in my salads a lot. My family loves them so I keep buying and planting more too. I also have a lemon tree but that doesn't count I suppose.
