I find it's good to just listen to people, try to take in every word your boss say, if there's anything you don't understand, ask her at the time. If you can remember any of it when you get home, write it down in your own notepad, you will be amazed by the end of the week just what you have learnt.
she must have confidence in your ability to learn or she wouldn't have given you the job.
I too get baffled by books, I learnt so much from my mum, who was an annuals, pots tubs and baskets expert and my dad who did the big garden with shrubs vegetables. I still miss asking him questions. He's been gone just over one year now, but I still get a quick' I must ask dad' moment here and there.
You will get there, everyone has to learn and I'm sure you will.
just having the interest and wanting to learn is half the battle.
