Happy Moose Gardening Forum: new for hosta, daylily, & iris lovers

  • Subject: Happy Moose Gardening Forum: new for hosta, daylily, & iris lovers

Today I invite you to join and participate in the new Happy Moose Gardening Forum. This web-based discussion forum is now the primary portal for personal interaction between lovers of hostas, daylilies, and irises collectively. Up until now individual forums existed for each of these three plant groups individually, and for the people that grow them. Now, TheGardenSite.com is bringing them all together in a focused forum, broadening the base for each of these three groups in a single gardening forum that expresses the shared excitement of growing hostas, daylilies, and irises.

The Happy Moose Gardening Forum is sponsored by Happy Moose Web Design. TheGardenSite.com with over 125 member web sites is providing this forum for all gardeners and assumes full operational expenses.

There are three major categories on the discussion board. One for hostas, daylilies, and irises, respectively. Within each of these categories are more focused forums relating to each category. A fourth category is also established for general socializing.

The best way to get a feeling of the new Happy Moose Gardening Forum is simply to visit it at http://happymoose.com.

We recognize the relationship between the commercial and consumer sides of gardening, and know that they are both major entities of the gardening world in general. In addition to the open discussion areas for the various plant genres, there are also categories established for members to post about their web sites, and for relevant gardening related commercial announcements. Basically, we offer the general and focused gardening discussion without the commercial ads, but do have appropriate categories for the commercial posts that are as easily accessible as a single click of the mouse. Also, the commercial and web site areas are not restricted to only associates of TheGardenSite.com, they are for everyone.

I encourage you to become a registered member of the forum. Registered members definitely will be able to enjoy more of the features that the Happy Moose Gardening Forum provides such as selecting your design preference (currently 5 different board layouts), the ability to edit and delete your messages, the ability to start and participate in polls, being eligible to win prizes in our free contests and drawings, as well as many other features. However, non-registered members may still participate in all the general forums relating to hostas, daylilies, and irises with the ability to post new messages and to reply to messages (note: non-registered participants may not post in the commercial announcement areas). Just as I do not feel you need to be a member of a certain plant society to walk in and enjoy the garden, I do not feel that anyone needs to be denied the excitement of gardening in the Happy Moose Garden Forum.

For over 10 years, I have participated in numerous internet forums operated on many different platforms. The Happy Moose Gardening Forum is structured with many of the best qualities and features of the different forums. The new forum will mature in a fashion shaped by its membership. The Happy Moose Gardening Forum should compliment your participation in internet gardening forums, and not compete with other forums.

Finally, I also invite plant society groups and clubs to take advantage of our "User Group" feature. This will allow for the formation of private forums for groups such as individual society Regions to have their own discussion forum, moderated by Regional representatives The User Group Forums can only be accessed and seen by the members of each User Group. This can also be set-up for individual clubs to have their own private forums. There are no expenses to clubs, regions, or other groups for enjoying this service. Happy Moose Web Design will maintain the hardware, software, and technical management of the User Groups for you, at no expense to you.

Come share the celebration as the Happy Moose marks our 10-year anniversary on the internet with the new Happy Moose Gardening Forum.

Glorious Gardening,

Bobby Baxter
