They always say to do nothing to a garden for the first year to see what comes up where, where the sun is etc. Take the time to enjoy seeing what appears, decide what you like, what you don't like, what you might want to change. This is a great place for posting photo's of plants and the wonderful experts on here can name them for you, then you can look up how to look after them.
In the meantime get reading those magazines. I have a couple of gardening notebooks that I got from Paperchase, where I jot down what I have planted, when, and notes on what to do for the next year.
Enjoy, its a new adventure, and you're always learning something new.
