If you’d like to donate rare or unusual plants to “Rare plants for rare disease research” here in Pencaitland, East Lothian, please email me at email@example.com. This rare plant sale fundraiser benefits the London charity Advocacy for Neuroacanthocytosis Patients, which funds research into an extremely rare neurodegenerative disease that my friends’ daughter was diagnosed with some years ago. We were delighted to receive plant donations from some of Britain’s best-known nurseries for our 2012 sale and hope to make the 2014 sale even better! The sale will be held on 24 May 2014 here in Pencaitland; further details to be announced on the site here and on Twitter.
