    I think the advantage this forum has over others is the friendly people and the non invasive moderators who manage to keep things going but adopt a very low profile. You have access to some very experienced gardeners who are happy to share their life time experiences with anyone.

    Ha!...and no sooner than Bill says that...up pops a Mod!

    I agree with all the things peeps have said so far....but also speaking as a member and not wearing my Mod hat, what I love about this site from a gardening point of view is that you get several replies fairly soon after posting.
    There's usually someone to ask for advice most of the time....including during the night!

    On other sites ( shhhh...yup I do have a nosy!).... You often have to wait several days for the same...or less...of a response.

    They are a bunch of know-it-alls Seriously, I don't think I've ever asked a question that didn't get an answer, there is such a wide knowledge base amongst the members and not just growing related. They are happy to help, even if the question has been asked a hundred times before (and like me, you are rubbish with the search button)

    Above all, it's the friendly atmosphere for me.

    PS: What I like about the forum?

    That people are always willing to offer help and advice. Plus the spirit of the forum, which is very friendly and good-humoured.

    Welcome to the Grapevine, Sixties Girl.

    I agree with everything that's been said so far. What I like best is having found a bunch of people who are as obsessive about growing stuff as I am, but who know a lot more about it.

    Nutters, nutters - they're everywhere ^^^^
    That's one of the things that I like about this Forum. You can have all the serious, helpful advice and support that you need, often within minutes of asking a question, but at the end of the day, there will always be some posts that make me smile, sometimes even cry with laughter.
    Welcome Sixtiesgirl, hope you can put a smile on my face too
