Spending Review: the implications for horticulture

In today's edition of Horticulture Week (29th October) we analyse the impact of last week's comprehensive spending review.

Leading professionals tell us what they think the government's tough spending plans will mean across each of the horticulture industry's sectors.

The challenges are many and varied.

In garden retail leading centres say the planned VAT rise remains of greater concern; to landscape design and contracting most agree large-scale projects are out for the foreseeable future and parks green space managers are weighing up options from efficiency savings and outsourcing to trust style models.

For full details see pages 4 to 7 of the 29th October edition which is out today.

* Don’t forget to let us know what you think the impact of the spending cuts will be on your sector here.
