I've put out a call on the volunteers' page to see if anyone can help ferry plants from Shaftesbury to Langport - it's only 30 miles so it ought to be possible...

Thank you to Maureen!

Volunteer found - see the 'help needed' thread!

Hey Gardenjeannie, I've not forgotten about your plants needing a lift!  I've specially asked the palletline network if they can encourage any of their northern / scottish depots to participate in helping us;  so hang on in there and fingers crossed we'll find a way of shipping them all from you to Somerset!

You are all doing a wonderful job

artjak

Forester; thank you so much, Rosie31 especially has really got this scheme up and running and so many other wonderful people have come up with plants and cousins and friends to transport the plants

AJ........any ideas on Veg plants........I took some strawbs last time but now have way too many Perpetual spinach and Lab labs and Butternut Squash ?

I have more plants to take in a couple of weeks maybe and could include veg if wanted ?

Have a nice weekend............wind is cruel here.............I have to keep running out of the Greenhouse for fear it will collapse around my ears

Phili2, I will be taking veg plants down (what are lab labs? 'scuse my ignorance) I am also taking many herbs, as some are very good ground cover, apart from being instantly usable like oregano and marjoram, which even if your garden is a complete disaster area, you can cut some herbs for supper. That has to make you feel better about your garden?

Wind has died down here at last. Have a lovely Sunday

AJ...........I don't have many herbs to give away            Lab Labs are similar to Mange Tout..........nice purple scented flowers and edible flat pods.............best grown on a post and wire system I find.  I'll include my spare veg on my next trip to Andrew then.

Lucky you............here the wind is still very fierce.............nasty gusts that take you unawares.
