I've recently moved into a new home with a relatively large garden. I am primarily interested in growing vegetables, however I'd love to grow a few flowers too (lilies, roses, sweet peas etc.). However, I am a complete beginner to gardening, being 17 and never having had a garden in which I could practice with my parent.
My garden is well equipped:
There are four raised beds. However, they become overgrown with weeds during summer, and I would love to get rid of these ASAP, and prepare them for the year ahead. I was hoping to dedicate 2-3 to edible plants, and the other 1-2 to flowers.
I have a greenhouse (with one pane missing). The greenhouse was previously used to house chickens, so the soil in here is well fertilised. The greenhouse is completely empty aside from a shelf. Is there anything I need/should buy to go in here?
I also have room for potted plants (possibly flowers or strawberries?) at the top of the garden which I'd love to utilise also. I'm interested in growing lilies, which I understand are grown in pots...
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I would be immensely grateful for any advice you can offer.
