So, what are your gardening plans for 2020? Currently pondering whether to order/chit some potatoes! (UK)

I need to make my bare-bones yard (front, back, side, all of it) look fabulous for zero dollars, can u help
That is my goal, reality will probably look more like hey I grew some tomatoes and otherwise it looks like an abandoned lot

Potatoes are very satisfying to grow IME. I've only done them in grow bags, not in the ground.

Oooh can't wait for spring.
Things I won't plant again this year: Red Russian kale, just because I don't really like it/we didn't use it. Broccoli, bc it takes up mad room and you don't get that much broccoli.
Things I want to try: Potatoes! And red cabbage. And more corn/get better yield from the corn. Some other kale, maybe lacinato?
Problems I have to solve: Whatever ate lacy holes in all the greenery needs to go. I think it's cabbage moths. Devastated my brassicas.
Front yard: I have to find something to displace this REALLY aggressive grass under the front porch windows. Something decorative and good with afternoon sun, that gets some height, and can fight against this horrible grass that puts out long runners and pops up everywhere.

Indoor hyacinths that have flowered and now look manky. They're in pots. Do I put the whole pot in the garage/outside until next year? Do I lift the bulbs? Do I plant them outside?

Also, I've been given a £10 Sarah Raven voucher - I know that doesn't get me a lot at Sarah Raven - but what would you buy?
