Hello all. Like the title indicates this is new territory for me. I have swapped my desktop for a watering can. I have started growing chillies earlier this year with some good and bad results and with the help of my lovely wife I have kept a voodoo fuchsia alive and want to get better and learn to grow veg for next year.

I was only growing the chillies in my garage. I have plans for a greenhouse and I just posted them up on a new topic on this forum to get peoples opinions on it. I plan to put garlic and onions and something else growing over the winter in it. I didn't even know you could grow an orange tree in ireland to be honest.

Welcome Wardy...it sounds as if your main interest would be in the culinary arts...would I be right ? It's a good way to get into gardening.

Welcome Wardie. Great to see another person rise to the challenge of GIY. You have a lifetime of adventure and discovery in store. There's loads of good info and advice available here and we are all learning.
I'm thinking about getting a greenhouse, so I'll be closely watching the advice you get.
