Rosie......for £6 I'd be more than happy to sponsor one

Hi Philippa - that would be great - I'll find out how it works!  (Here is a photo of the prototype for the planters - they'll be waterproofed and lined too.  Being made by one of the volunteers.  I think they look not bad for a few quid, what do you think?)

That's quite big.

If I'd been flooded and had one of those I'd fill it with rootings and cuttings, cadged or donated by generous people and grow them on for the future

Rosie...........they look good to me  An excellent idea to provide a bit of pleasure for those in the flooded areas.

Bump for planters

14/03/2014 at 18:08

They look wonderful; what a brilliant idea. Tell us where to send the money

14/03/2014 at 18:33

Rosie, I've PMd you

14/03/2014 at 18:55

Hi Nut

Yes, that's exactly right!  I think the aim is to get one of these (at least!) to every garden that has been destroyed.  That's in addition to all our donated plants, and the plants that the local volunteers will be growing on from our seed donations.  Seems like a good plan to me...

And Artjak, thanks for your PM, I don't know why it was rejecting you!  I've replied, let me know if you don't get it.

I've just found out how to use the smiley icons!

Rosie; another PM

14/03/2014 at 19:24

Rosie check PM to see if it is working

There are several Gardening Clubs I believe in that area, so that may be one way to arrange distribution. I've got the various phone numbers from the freebie Somerset Country Gardener magazine and as I live in Bath, you can count me in.

Lizzie, any info you can get hold of, would be good.

14/03/2014 at 20:23

Great Lizzie, that could be a big help. Any ideas welcome!

Saturday morning bump!

Have you had any more seeds arriving, GJ?

15/03/2014 at 09:22

I'll be sending a batch to GJ next week - have been sorting stuff out and also have some from my daughter 

15/03/2014 at 09:29

That's great, Dove - thank you!
