    Hi Alex, I'm also new to the forum, I've grown the basics in a greenhouse in the past few years but this year I am venturing into the outside world as well! I hope to learn from your experience!image

  • I grew potatos when i had my allotment. I grew some 1st earlies in sacks last year but im not growing any this year as i havent got the room. I love to grow them and when you dig them up its like finding gold nuggets image
