Paul B3, tongue in cheek or not you are spot on, this is an excellent gardening forum although this is the POTTING SHED and as any gardener knows who has had the privilege of sharing one a place of discussion on many and varied subjects.
Gardens are not made by deity of any description they are man made in our own image, we alter nature until the plants would not know their own roots as in Genus and not always for the best. Nature is a cruel force where everything lives because of something else, many are Symbiotic living in harmony others live on each other. We wonder why the Bees are dying out, butterflies no longer with us and other small creatures needed for our way of living disappearing, those of us of a certain age know why, we came from a time of hay fields, natural fertilising, resting land and mixing crops that were symbiotic. These days it is mass production, modify DNA and use of dangerous chemical and yet there are still people starving in this world, the only winners are the money men.
Yes it is a gardening forum and plenty of gardening gets done, we may talk a lot, may put the world to rights in the potting shed and discuss the often unthinkable but we also hold out a helping hand share our knowledge and on the whole do as little damage as possible.
If nothing else in this world I would be proud to be called a Gardener.
