Assuming you’re talking about growing vegetables and herbs outdoors, that’s a pretty general thing to ask. I’d need to know what kind of plants you’re wanting to grow to be able to help you. It’s best to just research the care for each vegetable or herb you want to grow online and decide if you’ll be able to grow it in your yard or wherever you want it and then decide where to put it. Generally herbs like a well-draining potting mix and should be fertilized occasionally and have compost mixed in with the soil and most herbs will need dappled sunlight or direct sunlight for most of the day outside. Fruiting vegetables will need more sunlight than non fruiting ones so keep that in mind. Other than that I can’t really help unless you tell me what you want to grow. Also if you don’t have much space you can try container gardening which is basically just growing vegetables and herbs in large pots instead of the ground which is what I’m doing this year once it warms up outside.

There's a few basics to consider before deciding.
What do you want to do with them? Ornamental or for produce?
Will they be in doors or outdoors?
How much sun does the area you're putting them get?
Are you looking for ones you replant every year or ones that you plant once and then just look after it?
