what plants have you ordered little ann ?  are they begonias ?

These plugs may form tubers by the end of the year, you can save these, dry them off and restart again next year with those. Seeds? I dont think that works with these.

Yes, I thought I had seen it somewhere, this will be my first year of growing some veg, never thought it worth the money and effort when you can buy a huge bag of carrots for £1. etc. Although, runner beans are definitely worth it at 8 beans  for a £1.

Is it worth having a garden professionally designed?

If I could afford it, yes good idea, I would love someone to come in, design, dig, plant so all I need to do is add and tidy. Got anyone in mind for the job. Probably could get it dome for about 30 grand.

Did I read somewhere that you just spike a hole in the ground, deep, and drop the leek plant in and leave it loose! perhaps I dreamt that.  Any ever heard of that?

I can't even grow from seed!!!!!!!

Are you using Thompson and Morgan seeds, they seem to think every single seed needs to go in a plastic bag, they sweat and the seeds stay to damp, who puts plastic bags over ererything in their garden and seeds set themselves well. Of course, some do benefit from a proagator, but T & M seem to think everything needs a bag.
