Yes! you and yours have a very big problem before you.
IMHO, nurseries and suchlike, share a similar problem to yours. The warm summer days etc, do tend to invite us all, to have a go at growing exoctic species etc. Once grown, we wish to keep them going throughout the winter months. So in all honesty. Dare I submit. The local nursery, will undoubtedly need every inch of space, for their own produce. Finance versus product. I dread to think, what the outcome would be. In reality. A negative concern in your specimens would be the outcome.
Have you tried your local council. To my limited, knowledge, most councils have some sort of botanical set-up, open to the public. Fair do's, there must be a risk factor, but a few pennies in the coffers of the local council, might just, help you and them.
Must be worth a thought.
Best of luck.
