First time grower and in need of advice!

Thanks, brilliant advice.
My boyfriend is a carpenter so will be making my raised beds. Unfortunately we can't take up any of the paving. We were thinking of making a bed that is raised off the concrete by a foot, is that the right thing to do? We have a space around 3m x 1m to put the bed in.
We suffer terribly with slugs and snails. We have two dogs and don't want them poisoned. Any tips?

Hello all. I have been lurking here on and off for some time but this year I have decided it's time to grow my own. I'd like to grow carrots, spuds, tomatoes, chillis, beans and peas but I really don't have a clue and don't know where to start! My garden is all paved and SW facing. I was thinking of having a raised bed (but not sure what size it needs to be) plus one of those small plastic greenhouse thingys and growing spuds in large gorilla buckets. I have a small windowsill propigator thingy to get seeds started indoors. Please help! I have bought a couple of books but it's all gobbledegook to me at the moment.
