I wish I found this site with its wonderful people before now. I would like to say I am a gardener but I only try and not very good. Hopefully with help from the good people here I might learn to be a little better. I love Roses but am not very good at taking care of them, I do try though. Thank you all in advance for all your help the only thing I ask is that you go easy on me.

Welcome aboard, William. All levels of experience are catered for here. One thing about gardening: no matter how expert anyone is, there is still lots more to learn.
So, get stuck in, ask lots of questions and enjoy the adventure of gardening!

Thank you very much for the kind words, I have been in the garden all weekend, but I think I killed one of my hanging baskets.

That's too bad, William. But don't worry, basketicide is not a hanging offence.

I hope you are right because the wife wanted to hang me instead of the basket. Laughing

So true and a few of them looked like they were going to be fun as well. Should the hardy annuals get in touch with the absentees and coax them back. A few random names that have disappeared in the last few months....... tawny owl, robineire, slave77, rowdy, lius, Mel B the list goes on. Another thing that I was thinking of was to resurrect old threads that were started and never had any responses and throw some new light on them. Anyone else got any ideas?

We have more Voyeurs than Participants and that has been proven Umpteen times over...no amount of coaxing is going to change that...there are to many distractions outside to Compete with... sometimes I even get tired of the Garden but I've plenty of other Interests to occupy my time...perhaps our Gardening Interests are just that little bit stronger to keep bringing us back to the Site...

Guess all the other Sites are feeling the pinch also...one other Site I'm a Member of literally has had no new Threads added in the past several weeks...but I'm game for anything to try and drum up some Interest...
