Rosie, you are WONDERFUL
I would recommend getting cardboard boxes from supermarkets, like wine boxes so the the lids can be taped down. If the plants are in the dark, they won't need so much water; just need to be damp I would think. I would also pack a little scrunched up newspaper around the pots if they are not a tight fit to stop them falling over, plants are sent through the post all the time and usually survive
I will still go down in mid-May as would like to meet some of the people running the plant creche and stay with my old friend. My latest count is about 260 pots, some with more than one plant in.
Again, Rosie; thank you so very, very much.
