I joined the boards back in 2005 or 2006, can't remember now, when they were part of the BBC's forum offerings. I wanted to ask about a particular plant. Ended up making friends, having fun, meeting up at RHS plant shows, having one to stay in Belgium, staying with another in England and just generally found it a good place to share and swap info and learn too.
I have stuck with it as the forums have gone thru "evolutions", tantrums, spats, prima donna stomps and mass walkouts to new boards and all sorts. Still chat every day by email with one group of friends, 2 of whom I've never met but now know well.
It's a source of laughter, comfort given and received and an incredible range of knowledge gladly shared amongst enthusiasts.
