Lovely Greens Recommends

Lovely Greens is about making, more than anything else. Create a garden, produce your own honey, build your own furniture, make your own beauty products. These seeds, tools, and kits will help you get started with your own diy projects. Some will also have an associated link to a project tutorial on the blog.


The selection of plants I’ve created below are essential for growers in areas with restricted water sources and drought conditions. These vegetables, herbs, and medicinal plants will do well when others may wilt! Sow the seed, mulch well, and reduce the stress of gardening.

Some garden fruit and vegetables are easier to care for than others. Here’s a selection of low maintenance varieties that will give you more harvest and less work!


Use these tools, tutorials, and kits to get you started with creating Lovely Greens products and becoming more self-sufficient in beekeeping, herbal medicine, and making your own beauty products.
