If you are an Aries, Taurus or Gemini (the prevailing star signs between March 21 and June 21), consider planting the following flowers, vegetables and herbs.
Aries> It is recommended that you surround yourself with bright colours, such as red. Therefore, plant red roses or gulmohar trees in your garden; their colour and thorns (in the case of roses) are believed to you have a kitchen garden, herbs and plants you should think about growing include those with strong flavors such as Garlic and onions, or aromatic herbs like wild mint.
Taurus. If you plant them now, you can be rewarded by lovely, fragrant lilies in a few months, and the same goes for colourful poppies which are also recommended. If flowers are not your thing consider planting fruit trees; these are a good bet and options that you should explore include chikoo (sapota) and ber (jujube) trees, as well as strawberry runners.
Gemini. Lilies of the valley and fragrant lavender are the flowers that you should; pants, especially if you live in northern Pakistan. Veggies that are prescribed for Geminis include carrots as well as herbs such as dill (ajwain). If you want to make your life easy, opt for different varieties of cactus- they are extremely easy to maintain.
