Garden centres in the UK are having one of their best years so far, says Andrew Richardson of UK nursery Johnsons of Whixley Ltd. But what about Brexit?
The EU has granted a Brexit extension until 31 January 2020, the UK will have new elections on 12 December 2019. Is Richardson happy the intended Brexit on 31 October is postponed? ’Yes, we were afraid of a no-deal Brexit’, responds the joint managing director of Johnsons of Whixley Ltd. ’But the uncertainty still continues.’
What does he think will happen? Has he taken orders earlier because of 31 October and possible delays at the border? And is his company prepared for the EU plant passport, as the new EU Plant Health Regulation will come into force two days after the new UK elections? Read all his answers and more in our new Floribusiness magazine.
