It is fantastic that these national companies are helping out in this way.  Nut's right - we can do the growing, but its all for nowt if we can't get the plants to where they are needed.  So a big thank you for helping us make it all come together  - who said big companies were faceless ?  They need to read this to find out how wrong they are

Nut, Chicky, AJ - you are so right!  I'll make sure that lovely Framptons and the Palletline network get your messages - thank you.

It's great news Rosie. You've all worked so hard to make this happen. I wish I was in a better location to help shift stuff - I can do  driving on weekends but there's a limit to how far I can go!

Perhaps  if they were given the info, G'sWorld could put something in the magazine to thank the companies concerned.

Rosie I've PMd you

25/04/2014 at 19:00

We must have been PM-ing at exactly the same time, Nut!

Rosie, you are so wonderful to have arranged this

25/04/2014 at 20:25

It's working! It's working!  (Calm down, girl....)

this is all good news . why is it not on tv or in the papers  . well done to all of you

archiepam, if you want to tell your local or national news media that would be great; a little publicity wouldn't be bad; but more importantly it would remind people that the awfulness of the winter flooding did not end when the media stopped reporting on it. The more the public are aware of the ongoing horror of having been flooded, the more pressure is put on the Government to spend our tax money on doing something about it for future years so these poor families don't have their houses and gardens wrecked again.

(Never forget; the Government doesn't actually have any money of it's own; only the taxes we pay which they are expected to use sensibly on projects for the public good)

Sorry to get on my high horse about this

I'm part way through making an arrangement to hand over some plants

I think I'm a way off the network we're drawing, so far, but I can link Scotch Corner to Wetherby Services, York truck stop or the Settle Falconry Centre if any of those are useful connection points.

Not a right lot here I could offer right now. Two pink roses are NOT looking happy. I've got a honeysuckle growing from a cutting in the magic area between compost heap and fence and a large number of small elder trees, but that's about it.

Charlie Nov, thank you!  That might well be very helpful - please do keep popping back to this thread to see what is happening!

Sympathies on the garden - mine is just beginning to shrug off the wet winter and get into its stride.  But I'm sure it will be blooming soon.... (including the weeds)

Gosh Rosie, that's brilliant news about Framptons & Palletline - what a wonderful offer of help and just what we needed.

Now it's up to us to get the plants to them.

Framptons and Palletline are really being stars; who are you handing over to to morrow Nut?

28/04/2014 at 13:57

Hi artjak, I'm handing over to a cousin of someone who is taking them to Somerset.

We have an assignation planned in the car park at Downtown store up by Grantham.
