I'm trying to find the best word for "grow" something in a garden. This includes the transitive: "grow potatoes", "grow my own tea leaves" - and also the intransitive, "lots of weeds are growing in my yard."
For the transitive use, 3 words come up most commonly: 栽培する, 作る, and 育てる. 栽培する seems like the most technically correct word, but I can't tell if it has too formal of a nuance.
What's the best word choice here?
