Because this is a friendly, chatty and informal forum I think we can sometimes be frank.....over frank...with our opinions. Just as we are with friend's and family we can say what we feel.
If this was a forum like many are there would be a formality without the friendliness ...we would just ask our garden questions and leave it at that. However, this is more than that I think. If we argue too much we will lose the forum as we know it. Debate yes! Love that. Differences of opinions yes! Arguements no.
This is just a well meaning thread needing no further comment on it.
