    Wanted to say what a friendly forum this is. I have been a member of another non gardening forum for a while and what a nasty place it was. Seems some people only join to argue and pick holes in people which is not for me so I will just stick to gardening and you nice people.

      Nice of you to say so, zilly:love30::thumbsup::snorky: I think it's probably because of our policy to send the "Boys"

          Gardening or not, we always love to chat :) Besides anything else, you have been here over a year now, so that makes you a veteran......... as well as a pineapple ;)

            @zilly I agree that is a nice forum. There are lots who post regularly but are considerate and are careful not to be over dominating. No drama, just sharing. It's comfortable and much like having a casual conversation :)

                  I see GC as being a forum not only for gardening matters but for everything under the sun. It's just like chatting to the neighbour over the garden fence (well, not one of my neighbours :rolleyespink: :heehee:) or to friends down the pub or at a club.

                  That's why people tend to go off topic quite often - just like a normal conversation.

                  It's also good when you need non-gardening advice or just a shoulder to cry on. :grphg:

                  For those of us that have been members for a long time, we have certainly made good friends amongst each other and it's lovely to see so many members turn up when we open our garden for charity. Some travel hundreds of miles to get here.

                      Yes, I travelled over 3,400 miles to get to Shineyland. And I do not regret it. I used over 30% of my visit to get there and meet everyone. I had a lovely time and if I was rich, would do it every year!
