Election 2010; who says what about horticulture?

With the election rapidly approaching the issues affecting horticulture are climbing the agenda and Horticulture Week has detailed coverage on where the main parties stand, and more.

This week the Liberal Democrats announced a raft of green policies including one that would see them bring 250,000 empty homes back into use with cheap loans and grants available for renovation.

This follows the manifesto launches of the Conservative and Labour teams, which set out plans for major changes for the regeneration policies of both parties.

For a better view of where the parties stand on issues affecting horticulture, check out Horticulture Week's further coverage:
