I only started on the forum on October and I have learnt so much. 

I see what you are saying! what about the month of March section, it will tell you what you should be doing in March but I am sure if you go on there and ask someone will reply. I am a newbie as well really but I just wrote something on the weather forum and then some one else wrote something, and then I wrote something again.

Hi folks

I joined last year but didnt find the nerve to join in when you all seemed to know each other. Today i thought i will join in  but the first thing i read was from someone i think his name was cloggerhead and he was complaining about people asking questions instead of just reading the information that the site gives out but i must say the rest of you sound friendly and i've enjoyed reading your comments.

Sometimes we  have a gripe, but hey don't you in real life?

Keep joining in, that's my advice

Hello Cal This is a really good friendly forum, I've only been on it a short while and I had never been involved with a forum before. Ask away and someone will know the answer. The only time people get shirty is if someone uses the forum to advertise a product, a disinterested recommendation is o.k. but very occasionally someone baldly promotes their own product or service; then the forum bites back

Speaking of which I am still trying to sell my house-should I start a thread?

(paddy) the reason some people 'know' each other is because we've asked / answered / read lots of posts and also contributed to more general chit-chat threads. It is addictive for some of us!!
Clogerhead's advice is also good, though, because people here are incredibly helpful, but if the question has been answered 15 times in the previous fortnight (I do exaggerate slightly here!) you might not get any responses then you would think it an unfriendly place  Which it isn't

Lyon Greene, thank you and good advice of reading things to do and some very interesting stuff but it seem to be more for the experienced garden than someone who has decided for the first time in their life I think I am going to have a go at this!!! but thanks for the advice anyway, I have now asked a few questions and enjoying my time here and thank goodness for this site as without it I would of probably lost interest and gave up due to some of my newbie boo boos that I have been put right with and had chance to change before it was too late, thanks to everyone that helped me with my hanging basket fiasco LOL!!!

I am very friendly  the question seemed like a good idea at the time but now I tread very carefully I did not mean for anyone to take offence .

Everyone makes mistakes, every year, so newbies should not be ashamed to talk about them.

Sometimes a newbie comes along and tells us their woes about an allotment theft or a bad gardener, everyone offers their sympathy and advice and the poster just leaves everyone hanging................
