HTA calls for support for UK growers as imports grow

“We need the Westminster… Government to support our industry, as the Dutch Government has done for theirs,” says HTA chairman as UK plant production falls and imports rise.

I have to say it's as much about attitude as it is any help. UK suppliers of plants or any goods in my opinion are slow to react and slow to deliver. Ordered from a UK supplier and a German supplier on the same day, German supplier arrived in 2 days, UK supplier 9 days! UK suppliers have been slow to embrace ecommerce and when everyone was shopping online and nurseries were moaning about throwing plants away, the quickest I could get a delivery of plants was 3 weeks!!!
