Ive been on this site properly now for over four and a half years, since we moved house, which I cant believe how fast that time has gone by....flash of an eye!! And you know the amount of knowledge I have about the garden, plants, flowers, soil and all aspects of gardening is amazing. Ive learned so much and its all down to the wonderful people here on this site, who have shared so much knowledge with me and others. 

I came here with a little bit of know how about some flowers etc, stuff that I grew in my small garden, in baskets and pots and the likes. So of course nothing much really! But then once I came here and started reading journals and asking questions, a whole new world was opened up to me. So much so that I now can identify some plants that I thought I would NEVER know, but also I have acquired a huge amount of plants, shrubs, flowers etc that I never even knew existed. Most of these I would have bought...and thats been a lot, but also from the very VERY generous donations from the super people that I have met on here! I cant thank you all enough. 

So..............heres to many many more years on this wonderful site and I hope to meet up with lots of you over the coming months again!

Happy gardening!!

I feel that the people who are on this site are genuinely interest in garden and DO it. It is always great to share in their success and sympathise when things go a bit wonky.

Love that Geum, fantastic colour. Is it Geum Mai Tai'?

There are a lot of Flibbertyjibbet (is that a word?) gardeners on the Facebook page. But it's here that we end up with consistent posters, and look at the friendships we have built up too since we've all joined. It's easy to just post a photograph on FB, half of them are never heard of again.

Mary I dont think that one is G. Mai Tai, which I do have, as this one is a lot 'redder' in real life!

Gosh Jacinta did you make that up yourself lol........Its just different on FB, but this is the main place to be!

Thanks Jacky

Mary B you are WAYYY too kind. Im just following in the footsteps of others, but thank you!
