Help for flooded gardens

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?

    I am thinking of taking cuttings/ potting on spare seedlings, collecting from others and then driving over to Somerset when the gardens have dried out. Anyone else up for it?

    If I can help in anyway when the time comes I'd very much like too.

    Great idea - not sure what I've got to share as this is such a new garden, but I'll help if I can image

    No-one knows if you've done your housework, but everyone knows if you've done your gardening !

    Can't commit to delivering to Somerset but will help in any way I can. I will keep my eye on this thread & put my thinking cap on.

    Artjak, what a great idea, what a lovely person you must be.image

    Wish I could help, but not very practical living where I live, France.

    Er, actually B-L I'm not a particularly 'lovely' person, (have always wanted to be nicer than I am) just v. practicalimage.

    I think if people could start thinking now about sowing more seeds than they need, doing cuttings etc. then we need some way of contacting people in the worst flooded areas...are there any forumatti badly affected? They would know keen gardeners in their area who have suffered major damage.

    I am quite happy to do a day or 2 drive in a month or 2, collecting seedlings and plants and delivering them to where they are needed.

    I think this could work.
