I just got a bearded dragon and they are allowed to eat a large variety of flowers and plants. I am planning on starting a garden to grow some to feed him. I have never gardened before and honestly know nothing about gardening. I live in central, PA. I was wondering if you could tell me on the list which would be easiest for me to grow as a beginner. I am looking to grow as many as I can. I want to create a garden.

Here is the list of my options:

Astible Johnny-Jump-Up Viola (flowers)
Baby’s Tears
Hibiscus, Tropical (flowers, leaves)
Rose (petals)
Basil (leaves and flowers)
