The thing I love about this site is the fact that its inclusive. There's gardening professionals with years of experience and knowledge that they generously share, keen amateurs like me with a passion to soak up as much garden know how as I can and folk who are new to gardening, maybe having their first garden to look after. The wonderful thing about gardening is the fact that the more you know the more you know you don't know! There's always more to discover and that's the joy of this site. 

Think we've developed into a great community - everyone's welcome and has something to contribute

Where abouts are you Jesse?  My farming brother told me this morning that the rain that was forecast yesterday for East Anglia this weekend is not now going to happen - if you are going to treat your grass make sure you've a back up for the watering - Hozelock do this sprinkler which is suitable and not expensive and even better, there's an offer on at the moment

Better than Del Boy dove! maybe it's a typo? 

Probably spell-check or something - but much better than Del Boy 

Just heard that my dear friend passed away peacefully yesterday evening - thank goodness she's free from pain now.  She leaves a huge gap in so many lives
