RE: Sad news

GB is another gardening site that Derek was on. I just thought some of you may have known who he was. It's devided into sub-titles like "clematis", "roses", "peonies", "hobbies and crafts", and one called "wishes for you" that was used mainly to let members know that someone is sick/died. Some members posted about their own illness, or troubles. When you're a member of a site for a long while, you feel like some of these people are like family.

Try these links. Was not familiar with Derek but I use this sight all the time for Clematis and a few other plants. A very good world wide forum.

Here is a link that might be useful: GardenBuddies
