Hey Philippa, that is VERY positive!  Thank you.  (And thanks to your OH as well!)

Lizzie - I'm going to be passing Junction 18 mid-afternoon on Tuesday - would that be a possibility for a rendezvous?  If so, I'll drop you a PM with my phone number and more details. 

I'm heading down to Dorset on Friday and have arranged to meet up with the local plant coordinator en route - so we have a plan to get Lizzie's plants to the flooded area, hurrah!

Philippa - thank you so much for the offer of help.  I think we've got a plan for Lizzie's plants, but in future it might not be so straightforward - could you perhaps be a staging post for plants-in-transit in future? I'm sure we can make this work if we all put our heads (and wheels) together....

Gardenjeannie, you are more than wonderful!  Wow....250 packets of seed.  Did anyone think we'd do that when artjak started all this a few weeks ago?

This is a really, REALLY great forum.  I think you should all feel very proud of yourselves!

Lizzie, silly me, you are in Bath of course, aren't you!

Perhaps we could arrange a clever way to get your offerings to Somerset - I go back and forth along the M4 quite often so perhaps we could rendezvous at the junction if that suited you?  What do you think?

Hello all! 

Lizzie - great news on potted plants.  I think there is now an infrastructure in the flooded area ready to receive them.... our challenge is going to be transport.  I've had no luck so far in drumming up help from various national chains, but I'm not giving up!  In the meantime.... where are you?  Maybe we can use you as a test case to see if we can manage transport using members of this forum... (eg who lives near you and is planning to travel in the right direction, maybe relaying with other members?).  Yes, OK, probably too complicated but we could at least look into it!

Meanwhile I'm also beginning to thing that GJ must have drowned in a flood of seed packets!  Or possibly the fine weather has at last let her get out there into the lovely garden and do productive things.  I think we are all feeling better now the sun is shining...

Watership Down used to be my favourite book.  And then I became a gardener.
