I realise you may not have seen this that I put into a discussion thread, rather than here. So apologies for that.
I have been given permission to plant these on a public site owned by Williton Parish Council, so if you would give me a time when and how I can contact you, I can tell you more. Thanks. I hope you still have them available.
