        I searched the term "garden forum" and spent a few weeks reading around them. I felt this was the friendliest so I decided to join.

          Pretty much the same as Everhopeful; I knew I'd need to tap a few experienced brains on my gardening way, and started looking for a British Isles based one for easy climate comparison. Then I narrowed it down to ones which had a good activity level, then narrowed again for friendliness and an easy to get layout (dyslexia).

            Hi, Just googled gardening forums and found this one, so thought I would give it a try. It is the first gardening forum I have joined :) so I am hoping I can get lots of help and advice.

                  I just woke up with a lump on the back of my head, rope burns on my wrists and a threatening message with directions taped to my chest...

                          Same as most of the above - realised I would need help with numerous things this summer - being a complete amateur!. So I googled "gardening forum", looked at most of the first page, this seemed the friendliest and one of the busiest. Only one I joined from the list. :smile:
