Formative vs Summative Assessments

My lesson is about plants. Within the lesson, we will plant different plants and tell the difference between the plants and how we will get them to grow and stay healthy. Would it be better to do summative assessments or formal assessments? With summative, I can randomly test them about the plants, or the whole year can be strictly about plants. If I were to do formative assessments every week, I would have a pop quiz to test them constantly.
