Are you kidding me? What a waste of space in this forum. Welcome to PBS, Brad, and I'm sorry for your starting experience with the forum. We usually do focus on bulb-related discussions, but the list sometimes develops a kind of cabin fever where it goes off topic. I think maybe the nasty weather that many members have been living through has contributed to the latest outbreak. It's intensely annoying to some members, and I apologize for contributing to it. I hope you'll feel better about PBS after a year. The bulb and seed exchange alone is a huge reason to be a member, and I hope you'll take advantage of it. Meanwhile, since you're a new member, please tell us about your gardening activities. What sorts of bulbs do you grow there in Ontario? And are they in a greenhouse or out of doors? And do you have any questions we can help you with? Thanks, and again...welcome!

That way you'll receive only one or a couple of combined messages per day. It can cut down the annoyance factor.
