I especially enjoyed Joe planning the cottage garden. Would love for him to come and plan for me. He wouldn't believe just how small some peoples gardens are!! 7m by 4.6m.

As everyone says MUCH MUCH too short

can we start a free plant give away in our local area

I must say that some people have sent me rooted cuttings and tiny plants through the post on the seed swap on here. The roots and a little soil can be wrapped in damp kitchen paper then put into a plastic bag. The whole thing put into a fruit punnet thing from the supermarket. Then one was put in a modifted cardboard box and another a jiffy bag. It makes swapping easy with anyone on the forum.

Afraid I can only suggest Viola, Pansies or Primula. Or a foliage basket with grasses, Ivy, that sort of thing
