A Day Out

We have to remember that this forum is VERY PUBLIC  and there can be people on here who actually never post but just lurk.  Some lurk in a good way, just reading and enjoying, but from time to time there are a few lurkers who like to complain, cause problems etc.  There have also been malevolent posters in the past who have used personal knowledge found on here to harass and intimidate perfectly innocent gardening folk.  Do be careful about posting too much info about where you live, your planned activities, or personal email addresses, workplaces etc, and even be a bit wary about PMs - it's a shame, but better safe than sorry.

However, you can trust me ......................
