Horticulture Week Podcast #1: horticulture and coronavirus roundup

Matthew Appleby and Christina Taylor discuss the big issues affecting the garden retail, ornamentals, fresh produce and parks and gardens sectors.

In this, the first podcast from Horticulture Week, we discuss the challenges for garden centres, ornamentals growers and other suppliers after the garden centres reopened.

Parks and gardens have just reopened and have never been more appreciated and well used - which has had mixed consequences for the sector.

And as the UK imposes a two-week quarantine on visitors to our shores and the real impacts on industries start to hit home, we speculate on how staycations might benefit the trades and a newly-liberated domestic workforce might help British fresh produce growers bring in their harvests in the months to come.
