HW SURVEY: What will be the impact of post-Brexit changes on plant imports in 2021?

Will prices go up? If so, who will pay?


Ornamentals growers and retailers, reeling from the coronavirus crisis, are now faced with new uncertainty over border arrangements at the end of the Brexit transition period on 1 January 2021.

Importers are concerned biosecurity checks, tariffs and changes to the plant passport system could cause plant import delays and add to costs.

Horticulture Week is surveying ornamentals growers and garden retailers to find out if they believe prices are likely to change and whether they are getting enough guidance from Defra to help them manage their stock post-Brexit.

Please let us know in our brief, anonymous, survey.
