Members Plant Distribution
To all BFS members who are part of the plant distribution scheme.

For those of you who opted for collection from a nominated nursery, please call the nursery and arrange to collect this month (April). If you have forgotten which nursery you nominated, please contact either myself or Carol Gubler.

The postal distribution has been delayed a bit because of the very cold weather and they will be sent out w/c Monday 19th April

UPDATE The mail order plants were posted today (Monday 19th) first class so should be delivered in the next couple of days. With the easing of travel restrictions in Wales it is now possible to collect from Roualeyn, but please call them before you go.
