Not so Leo.  I am on Facebook, joined the Thai Zephyranthes and 
Habranthus group, as well as the English speaking one.  It compliments 
the PBS.

An interest in bulbs can be a very lonely thing.  Certainly here where I 
live, I have no-one who has a similar interest. It is wonderful to 
communicate with others of like mind.  To exchange seeds and ideas, I 
revel in it.  And the acknowledgement of each achievement.  And I have 
learned a lot from the Facebook group.

Yes, for a lot of the learned knowledge I go to the PBS.

Bulb growing takes both knowledge and social interaction with exchange 
of ideas and seeds.  For those who are so lucky, even exchange of 
bulbs.....  Knowledge on its own is a lonely thing.
