    This forum has been going for well over a decade so you'd have a lot of reading to catch up even tho previos incarnations are no longer online.

    It is still a good place to come and ask questions, seek opinions, receive and offer advice and info and also make virtual friends.

    There used to be a thing called books. Personally I like ancient tools and advice from old gardeners. I think Monty is doing a good job in passing on his knowledge, but we rarely see the outcome and he has lots of help.

    Gardening is a never ending interest that has great surprises and some awful failures but still we keep going. It is artistry and at the moment, I want something delicate and orange to lift the pinks, blues and whites in the pots. Having said all that, I would love to live in his garden.

    None of these help when it comes to identifying the weeds from the intended seeds. But I find that many knowledgeable people on here can.
    Most of these were scrounged up online or on liquidation as they are no longer in print. I am happy to scrounge up more if anyone has suggestions to add to my growing stack.

    You have a nice collection there but I agree, lots of help on here. I don't know if you have charity shops where you are, but that is a good source for books to add to your stack.
