Ok, so you all next Spring, I will be creating a vegetable garden. I am also going to be planning an apple tree that spring as well. I'll take a picture of where it will go and post it for the spot in my next responce for here.

I was wondering on any one having an idea on what type of vegtebales and fruits I should try growing in my garden for birds including Tiels and Budgies. Reason I'm doing the garden is because I'm thinking about seeing if my birds would like fresh grown garden. Also, what type of grass is healthy to try and grow too for the birds as well for those who grow there own grass?

One of the things I plan on growing which will take a while to grow will be my own apple tree in my back yard. Now, I dont know on what other vegi's and fruits to grow for them.

Will post the plot that they'll be in tomorrow least the vegi's and fruits. The apple tree will be else where though.

Tressa what type of Apple Tree are you planning on planting. You cannot just plant one apple as they need another apple to pollenate each other. If you don't you won't get any fruit. So if you plant a Red Delicious you need something like a Granny Smith to pollenate. You may be able to get an apple that has multiple grafts. Apples are not grown from seed. They are grafted onto what is called a root stock. Pears are the same. I have a pair tree that has been triple grafted. That is 3 types of pears on the same tree. Well you can get the same thing with an apple, 2 or 3 different types on the same tree. I have 2 apple trees, a Pink Lady and a Granny Smith. One is red the other is a green apple.

Bell peppers, kale and romaine or leaf lettuce are always a hit here :D

Firstly, don't use any pesticides in your garden.

Plant your bird's favorites. Try offering them different vegetables and fruits right now, see which ones they like best, then you'll know which ones to plant and which ones you shouldn't waste your time planting. In addition to vegetables (some include broccoli, carrots, and cauliflower) and fruits (some include melons, grapes and berries) you can also grow edible bird-safe flowers. These can include honeysuckle, marigolds, roses, and lavender.

Hopefully this will have helped. :) If you are still out of ideas, I'm sure you can look up some more garden ideas on the internet. Good luck!
