Hmmmm.  What browser are you using?  Not that it should matter, but I 
sometimes see differences for certain sites.
+[pbs] [hippeastrum] site:///
got me 823 hits using both Firefox and IE from a PC.
255 hits using 'fertilizer'.

Interesting that the spaces are unnecessary: 
seems to work just as well. Smart Google.

I hope a more savvy member can help.
