"For goodness sake, Google it!"

I'm new to this website and loving this forum malarkey. I admit that now, any question I have I just ask rather than looking it up on Internet as I would otherwise. Is that ok, or are you all thinking, "for goodness sake, Google it!"?

    Google just gives a very wide overview with a lot of generalisations to cover all parts of the globe-a lot of it is USA based

    So no ask away is my advice-people who answer on here, answer based on their own hands-on experience-100% betterimage

    Supernoodle, if the questions weren't asked, and we didn't answer them, or try to, then there would be nothing to google!! image

    Whether it has been asked before, or a new question, I still read all the answers regardless. If it has been asked before, many people answer with the relevant thread, so keep asking those questions!

    This site, like many others MAKE google what it is, full of answers!! image

  • Oh yeah. Good point!

    And Google does not give us the chance to show off, just how clever we are!

  • It's much more fun to have an interesting conversation with all the knowledgable gardeners on here and have a laugh into the bargain. Keep on posting.

    To be honest, before I joined this forum earlier this year, I googled ALL my gardening questions, jumping from different sites, forum to forum, comparing the answers. But now I know people on here much better, I'd rather just stick to asking on here. And we have our own little gurus on certain subjects! It's great. image

    "Oh yes" goggle it indeed and then find the answer is something you yourself put on some other forum as i discovered last week.
    Looking for some old information my local history section had lost and having to go to the site then enter my own name, there was a very recent picture of me I had never put on any site. I can only think the grandchildren who use social networks must have put it on a site that was picked up by google. We are told it cannot happen, it obviously does
    Going through, it turned out there was page after page from many forums a lot of them BBC there must be several hundred, I did not check for any from this site as yet. Big brother is watching and is called google.

    A recent photo?!! I thought you'd been pickled in aspic, circa 1940 image at least you've achieved Internet Immortality image Seriously, you make a good point, often Google points you to Forums, and if you find one you like, why not stick with it and ask the questions there? At least you get to know the contributors......and their foibles image
