Hi linda
Sorry to learn about the flooding and damage. I hope you will be able to salvage enough for your needs. I've got spare plants still if you need any.

Hi Linda.
Sorry you couldn't make it to the Oooobymeet but I understand. Maybe you would like to have it at your garden one day? I'm sure we'd love to see what you are up to there. I still have plants if you'd like some. I've got lots of tomatoes, aubergines, peppers and all -sorts, including celeriac seedlings. I like growing heirloom varieties and usually have a few spares.
