Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

WHY did my job have to start carrying plants?!?!?! aghh! haha. i was wandering around our "garden center" today and decided to buy these two guys! i can't wait to see the butterfly bush grown! i planted them both along the fence in my back yard. hope the dogs don't mess with them

"Miss Ruby" butterfly bush. Its new from 2009 or 2010. its supposed to be more compact than a normal one only getting about 5x5 feet which is small for these guys i guess haha:

curse you and your butterfly bush! JK Wink

i LOVE BB but i have planted 3 in the last 2 years and they have not come back in the spring. i did go to HD yesterday and i think i saw this "new" BB it was being called a shrub and it had a center trunk and then bushed out where the 3 bushes i have tired were more like sticks coming out of the ground... I am toying with the idea of giving it one last try on this shrub.... where do you work and how much was your BB? HD had them for $20

You lucky duck! I'm so jealous! I want to get a butterfly bush in the worst way but I think hubby would have a fit if I brought home another plant. silent Awesome price on that thing too...oh I'm just seething with jealousy over here. Laughing
