Goodness! So glad I posted. The two sites suggested by LucyL and GemmaJF have pleased me no end. I was unaware of their existence, but now I will be visiting often. Thank you.

This section of our gardening forum is, I feel, so valuable because as far as I know it seems to be the only one in regular use. I remember a few years ago, the RSPB ran a forum, but sadly no more. Also the BBC Autumnwatch and Springwatch allowed us to post our sightings and views. This one too came to an end. Such a shame, when one thinks of this massive subject.

Which company to order seeds and plants from...

I would highly recommend Suttons. A good catalogue, I find. Also D. T.Brown

In response to Palaisglide, hello Frank! As this forum is run by Gardeners World mag,I guess I originally thought the subjects we could chat about would be connected to gardens, i e wildlife, and the other headings we regularly see now. Maybe I didn't delve deeper, or was afraid to introduce other unrelated topics.

Would you pay more for a pint of Milk ?

So nice to see so much agreement regarding the appalling price of milk. Coming from a long line of farmers, on both sides, it bothers me no end, to see so few dairy herds in our lovely countryside. Also a great deal less pasture land to wander over. 

Sprouting Broccoli

Interesting which varieties of sprouting broccoli gardeners are choosing to grow. Goodness, January is early to harvest, mine is usually April. Thought I would try one of the varieties from D.T.Brown's catalogue, next year. Not easy to make the right choice always.

I can't quite figure out why some forum members took my original post as a criticism. It was a case of "As a matter of interest...." I do not know how many forums there are, but two which are regularly used, are Digital Spy, and The Lounge. Seemingly covering every subject under the sun. I find it so nice to be able to chat about cookery, agas, dogs, music, politics, music, wildlife. Thirst for knowledge. Oh dear, that darn enquiring mind again!!

Here I am again! Well, well, what a response. I was just fascinated by what my fellow humans do. Most folk would agree that it is best to have an enquiring mind. Hence never bored.

I do not wish to be rude or say the wrong thing, but I often wonder where some people get the time from to contribute to this forum so often. Some names pop up on such a regular basis one wonders if they ever do any work. Is it good for someone to have the computer on quite so often?.
