I like "Mercifully brief". I live in a government city - National Capital of Canada - and there's so much verbosity and hot air around here that I don't need more elsewhere. But I definitely agree that there's a difference between a brief comment that conveys something and one that says no more than "I agree", or "nice plant" or ....

That's great. Also remember the biggest reward is that you are helping someone make a more knowledgeable decision about a plant.

IMHO, and I'm only asking for what I want, I'd like any comment to tell me exactly where this plant is growing (sun, shade, clay rock, whatever...), whether it will grow in my zone, and if there are any special needs for it... and, what you did, as an amazing gardener, to make it really thrive!! Thanks, all... I need your help!

ViolaAnn said:Calif_Sue - that quote sounds like a comment from 'Allan P. McConnell'. LOL


ViolaAnn, that was a comment YOU made, Thumbs up I just went to your member page to see your comments after you asked about what would be a helpful comment.


You can always test out the acorn count. Check to see what you have, then make your comment and check the count again. Try it a few times and see what size of comment triggers what portion size of acorn count.
