Yes Jeff I do know how to cut and paste, but if someone is just to
bloody idle to look up a simple thing on Google (or Chrome or what
ever) then why the hell should I bother to do the work for them.
I go along with much of what you say, David, but idleness isn't
necessarily the reason for a failed internet search, whoever the OP's
I remember responding to a special seed search question and suggested
the then OP google on 'heritage seeds', which I knew would throw up
oodles of links. The OP was glad to take this advice. His real problem
was not idleness, but the lack of a suitable search word/phrase. He
searched for 'seeds', but 'heritage' was the extra tag he needed to
properly address his search. I was glad to help, as most urglers are;
indeed as are you. We all have moments of mental dullness when we need
a little help.
Also, some of us like to see the views other, more experienced gardeners
and their practical experiences in a particular topic.
Google/www.any is full of absolute rubbish IMO.
It is people like Dave Hill (and loads of others) where we get useful info
within this group. I mean practical and tried and tested from people who we
know and trust.
In my experience it is always better to ask in this group. My success as a
fairly new gardener can be down to asking questions in this group from, as
I say experienced gardeners.
