Help for flooded gardens

Posted: 13/02/2014 at 20:05

It is, I know, far too early yet but could we create a seed/plant gift for people whose gardens have been flooded for weeks and whose plants have died?

I know I would be pretty heartbroken if my garden was under water for weeks and I don't suppose that the Insurance Companies pay out for plants.

Has anyone any ideas as to how this could be implemented?

Help on the way.

Heard on radio 4 this pm that farmers from, I think Yorkshire, are taking cattle feed down to the farmers in Somerset, even Tesco are offering the use of their trucks (would you Adam and Eve it!) But as one Northern farmer pointed out, the Somerset Farms will need cattle feed for the whole year as their crops will be ruined/ drowned.

Perki, I am so sorry; I know I would be soooo upset if the same happened to my greenhouse.

Panda, I was briefly in Ixworth in Suffolk today, walking the small mutt; there was a lovely drift of snowdrops down by the river; must remember to take my camera with me in future

HELLO FORKERS!

I hope all forumatti are ok, not damaged by gales and floods I find this weather rather humbling.

Did I review 1500 plants in my sleep?

Why does it say I've reviewed all these plants?
