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

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!

to put your discussion forum subscription in digest mode. That way you'll
receive only one or a couple of combined messages per day. It can cut down
the annoyance factor.
