The least effort thing you can do is a collection only eBay auction for a "job lot" of plants. I'm also sure if you give people a little more than 24 hours to react someone will be able to help. I'm not familiar with the area, but there must be a local branch of BCSS you could donate the plants to.

I'd love to give home to some of the plants here, but I'm too far unfortunately.

I'd be interested in a few of them, but I am also rather far away.

If you'd consider posting them I'm sure you would find good homes for most, if not all, of them.

I'm interested in a couple of them as well and I'm not too far from Midhurst, if you don't mind would you be able to send me a PM with the address or your contact number.

Hi Tim
It takes effort, but eBay really can be a lucrative way to move plants on, but you need to offer postage. I’m in Lincolnshire and was certainly interested in several plants on this list, but wouldn’t be willing to dedicate a days driving and £80 of diesel to collect, whilst I would be willing to pay decent prices and shipping for decent plants.
