Hello to all of you.
I have been thinking of adding a motto or tagline to the Irish gardeners heading.
I have come up with some ideas, so I said I would run a poll and ask you to vote for your favourite.
If you have a suggestion yourself please let me know.

I voted for "Growing Ireland, one gardener at a time" because it sounds like as gardeners come onto Irish Gardeners one by one then Ireland will be a more knowledgeable about gardening Very Happy

I chose "Growing Ireland, one gardener at a time". But it was a real decision between it and "Gardening is a way of showing that you believe in tomorrow."
I like the pun on Growing Ireland - I think that it's a pun!

I never thought of gardening that way. I guess you go through times when you ponder that age old question, "what are we doing here". Now I know - looking forward to Spring bulbs making an appearance next year! Thanks for that GPI.

I liked the give a little - take a little.

Probably because I've been thinking about giving, all day long.

Its something that I want to do more of and keep doing. I used to be a bigger giver several years ago. Time to get back to giving again.

This ties in well with the site name, although some of the others are quite good.

That must rate me as a 4 on the naffometer
