Of 127 responses, 56.7% wanted garden centres to open again after they shut on 23 March because of coronavirus lockdown.
Celebrities such as Alan Titchmarsh, Peter Seabrook and David Domoney have called for garden centres to open to help people through the crisis and save the industry this spring.
Respondees comments included that opening on a "click and collect" basis only might be the best option. Others said social distancing and limiting people entering is good enough for all the other shops that are open and with gardening's benefits to wellbeing, garden centres should be classed as essential.
