Having never grown anything since mustard and cress in primary school and always avoided having to get my hands dirty, I've finally decided to have a go at gardening. I'd really like some practical tips about how to go about this. Are there any very patient gardeners out there?
I thought I'd start with potatoes. I've got three potato bags off Amazon and later on I'm going to get some seed potatoes and bags of compost from the garden centre.
My next thought it is 'What could possibly go wrong?' because in my experience something undoubtedly will - and everything is going to shrivel and die, get the plague, be attacked by zombie insects or go the wrong kind of green. I'm really excited about this and want to do it right. I feel like a child with a new toy. Any useful suggestions about about what mistak4s not to make, useful web sites, books, resources?
