I'm from the Gardening & landscaping beta. I ask more questions than I answer here, and enjoy learning about and , as well as other things. I may answer some questions.

I've liked biology since I was young, and like seeing this site grow. It's my 'baby' site, where I hang out and vote to keep thing up.

Feel free to drop me a note:

There isn't a general site like that. This can be moved to gardening.se, but generally it's good to look around here, and try to find the closest fit.

comment Ants eating bark
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about diagnostic tree care, not biology as defined in the Help Center. It should be on Gardening & Landscaping beta.

comment Ripening bananas artificially: What is the biological reason
+1, I often have to explain to folks who bought their potted plant at the grocery store why it is seeming to die for no reason. They are often on a stand near fruit, and ethylene is toxic to many growing plants.

@souvik But you cannot add genes from out of the genus this way, so not the same. I've hybridized plenty of plants in my time, including some quite nice roses.
