Always buy British when in season this year is no different
Plants are difficult due to plant passports, delays are a nuisance to everyone. I already try and buy more UK grown items but we need the Horticultural industry to step up and be given more support
Sundries are all running out at wholesalers but thought it was covid related because has been happening since way before Christmas
Can’t get plants yet
I honestly don’t know yet, there are so many variables it could be covid as well as brexit that’s having an impact. I think the wholesalers have had the most impact
My business has increased
Some sundries are becoming difficult to get
Flower prices have crept up in the las couple of weeks red rose’s pre-ordered were same as last year, stopped ordering most plants because they are mainly pick ups
Just changed the days we buy and work accordingly
I can only buy plants for delivery once a week
Not so far
we could not get chocolate from IS
No dropping in or click and collect!

Q 13. With Covid restrictions, lockdown, flower price increases, snow and delays is there anything else you would like to shout about!
