The site has useful information. I joined to access the forums so I could interact with others about growing plants. When I tried to do that, the message was that I needed to pay. That wasn't what I understood when I signed up. Frankly, I think that is really dishonest and I have learned. This is the first such thing I have tried as a forum--and it will be the last. No one likes to feel scammed.
