Irene, I got your email ...
Irene, I received your email through Garden Web, but I can't reply until replies are enabled. To allow replies look for this at the bottom of the GW opening page:
"Please note that you must enable this feature on your Preferences page by checking off 'Allow other users to send you email'."
Clicking 'Preferences' takes you to your preferences page where you can change the options. Your email will not show publicly, but will allow people to reply when you send them an email through GW using their page.
Happy gardening with us at Garden Web!
