I'm a novice; get me out of here!

Ground zero. That’s where I’m starting from with learning how to grow fruit and veg. If that sounds like you, then we’re in this together! 


I’m not from a particularly veg-growing family. My grandparents grew the odd spud and rhubarb. My mum and stepdad grew potatoes and grapes in the greenhouse at one point, and my dad grew tomatoes for a few years. 


I’m not naturally green fingered and I struggle with house plants. I have very little knowledge about horticulture, and my previous experience makes for a very short CV.
