Q.Total Newbie Without A Green Thumb

Zone 11213 | Anonymous added on March 8, 2023 | Answered

I’m starting an initiative in junior high school to do quick 10 minute (or less) weekly planting of like onions, garlic. Things that need minimal effort. I don’t know the first thing about gardening and can hardly keep my two plants alive. Help!!!! What size planters should I buy? What’s a good nutrient to put? This is for Brooklyn school with absolutely no space and certainly no outdoors.
