How to make a garden in Minecraft?

Minecraft has several things you can do other than just hunting for resources and fighting off mobs. The game offers avenues for relaxing activities like gardening as well. 

In this article, we’ll be making a garden in Minecraft and raising some crops.

What do we need?

Before we get started with a garden, you’ll need a hoe. A hoe in Minecraft, much like its real-life counterpart, is used to till the soil to make it usable for farming. 

Once you have the required tool for the job, we need something to plant. You can plant the following items in Minecraft.

  • Carrots
  • Potatoes
  • Seeds
  • Beetroot Seeds
  • Melon Seeds
  • Pumpkin Seeds

Do keep in mind that seeds will harvest into wheat. All other items mentioned above will harvest into themselves. You can also use bone meal to act as a fertiliser to make your plants grow quicker.
