Hi Anne what a great offer, I hope you don't think I'm been too cheeky, but can you extend it eastwards to include us folk in Lincolnshire  :D

If you've seen dear Brian staggering, Ingrid, I'm sure it was not because the bags were so full of plants - merely that his back was bothering him!   I think he is a martyr to it - I'm sure there were no more than one or two bulbs in each bag............ ::)

(I've done my best for you, Brian - send cash!)

Quite so, it's not the bulbs it's the pots and the soil 8)

There are none in mine - so For Leena, and Yorkshire and Scottish customers refers do descendancy rather than residency - rules me out. ???

I would think that as a Yorkshire woman herself, Anne would appreciate that there are English-born folks who like a bargain as much as her ain folk and we Scots!  ::) :P       ;D

Stingyness  Prudence knows no boundaries, eh?  ;D

A lovely idea to offer a kit, Anne....and what of a lowly American who makes a mean Yorkshire pudding and has Robert The Bruce in the cobwebs of his family line?  ;D Rick

I will not be asking for birth certificates! Anyone who is prepared to do-something-themselves rather than pay good money qualifies as an honorary Yorkshire person.
