Gardenjeannie's package of seeds have arrived safely and are being distributed to local gardeners and gardening clubs for sowing.  Message posted by Andrew on the facebook page:

"I have to say I was quite moved when I opened the box. Peoples generosity really does know no bounds. this is no longer just an 'idea', but a real thing where we are helping people. A great feeling!"

Andrew's a no-nonsense chap so this really says a lot.  Well done everyone!

Great advice, Artjak - all take note!   I don't want to get too excited... many a slip and all that.... but it does look hopeful.

See the 'Transport' thread for some VERY ENCOURAGING NEWS!

STOP PRESS!  VERY EXCITED!!  OK, I'll stop shouting now.  But we've just had an offer from a Somerset haulage company with national networks that could possible solve all our issues.   They are going to try to get a network of palletline depots to receive and pass on our plants nationwide.  Or possibly arrange to have their trucks meet us to pick up plants from us at motorway services. 

Obviously we'd now need to get our gardening heads together to think about how well our baby plants will travel - these won't be vehicles specially adapted for plants, so at the very least we'd need to give them a good watering, maybe prune back any trailing bits, tuck them up nicely....etc etc.  But this sounds really, really hopeful!

Gardenjeannie, your plants might be on their way soon!

That's great, AJ - so let's see how many we can get shifted on 4th May with the offer from the Somersetter, and then you could perhaps bring as many of the remainder as you can handle?

Probably not all, Nut - I think one small car boot-ful - but it's a start!  And these are only volunteers....keep fingers crossed for help from transport companies....

Okee dokee - that means I think we have sorted out the south east run, and also at least partly sorted out Nut's plants.  Now, just need a solution for GJ's plants heading down the M6....
