Merry Christmas from Down Under!!!

pkozulDecember 22, 2011

HI all,

Just wanted to say Merry Christmas to you all.

Thanks also for sharing so much valuable advice and information (specially Al). Reading the posts on this forum has become a daily habit now, and it's always great to see more and more people getting involved.

Lucky for me I stumbled across these forums. As a result, our plants that were once doomed are now thriving. I've almost finished repotting every plant into the gritty mix (and some are now in the 5-1-1 mix).

Keep up the great work!

It makes me very happy to learn that you've taken to heart the message that it's much easier to produce happy/healthy plants in fast draining, well-aerated, and long lasting soils, Petar; but even happier to learn how well it's working for you.

Merry Christmas to you .... and to Laura, and all the others whose company we all enjoy so much on the forum! I wish that Christmas peace in your hearts is the gift of the season and a blessing to be counted as yours all the year through! It's the feeling of peace in our hearts that best puts Christmas in the air.

Hi all,

Thanks Al and Laura, for your kind words and wishes.

Al, your help here on these forums has been of enormous value to so many of us, and I greatly appreciate it.

Regarding progress, I posted some photos I took today on the thread I started a while back:

Gritty Mix in Australia

All the best wishes to everyone here, and your families.
