    Yes it is a good forum this one, but I wouldn't be put off trying to contribute. I'm still very near the bottom of the learning curve too, but the way I see it, nobody has all the answers, and sometimes a seemingly crazy idea or an observation that seems contrary to what is widely accepted can get people thinking outside the box so to speak.

    The other day I was on my land, checking up on my new trees, and consider this for an observation that goes against accepted knowledge: Apple trees flower in spring time yes? I had to take a second look and get someone else to verify that I wasn't seeing things. One of my apple trees has burst into bloom - at the end of september.

    So you see, even if you know little, you still might have something valid to add. What I do is if I think I know but am not sure, or if I've observed something but I don't think it is the norm, I'll say so in my post so that people might benefit from my input, but at the same time I'm not claiming to be the expert. That way people can take or leave it so to speak.

    Well said Kelly. And well said Clueless - its well worth just starting a conversation. I have learnt so much in casual throw away comments as well as studied replies.

    And Clueless - by my backdoor I have Lupins and Wallflowers in flower! Mind you I sowed them a bit too early this year. Being biennials they wern't supposed to flower till next year!

    I second that :gnthb:, I look on most evenings and have had help with a few queries. I also spend quite a bit of time looking in the various sections, the gardens are gorgeous, and I love the photo section.

    Yes definitely a great site.
