Lizzie, you can have ours
Well, I've heard back from our friends in Somerset. At the moment the demand for plants has died down (most are now in the ground, and the big clean-up effort is focused on homes and interiors now). Andrew suggests that we should avoid building up a backlog of plants in pots that need watering over the summer, so the pressure is off for now.
Huge, huge thanks from everyone on the levels to everyone who has done so much over the past few months. The boost to morale, as well as the boost to gardens, just can't be over-stated. I've had a message from Gardeners' World Magazine that they might want to run an article on what we've been doing (well done Artjak!), so I'll let you all know how that goes.
Big grin, big hugs, and big thanks to everyone!

Thanks v. much for the update Rosie
That's lovely Rosie -so nice to know our efforts were appreciated
A big hi-five to everyone involved I think!
I do hope all those affected by the flooding get their homes sorted out before the winter
Not really a flood update thank goodness but just thought those who followed this thread might like to know in brief.............
As part of the coastal defence Steart Point did come in for a bit of stick (why spend millions on this , etc. ) but it came into it's own yesterday..........one of the highest tides and deemed a success. Good for birds and people
That's encouraging Philippa
Wonderful; thank you philippa for letting us know
Hi all, are we still doing this? I have my normal glut of seeds from the gardening mags wanting a good home.
Mark..........as far as I am aware the plant/seed distribution has finished for the time being. The main concentration for those affected is on the drying out, etc. of properties. It may well be that plants and seeds will be welcomed again next year to continue renovating the gardens but I don't know for sure.
In the meantime, have you checked out the Seed Swap thread on here ?
