CROP REPORT - 28th April 2022

End of April and we thought the spring was warming up... and then!! Its blooming chilly! All the crops are waiting for a watering - really need rain. Some crops have slowed right up due to chilly night and many are waiting in the wings for rain before they are ready to crop.  At the Home of British Blooms its Tulip Festival week - historically the time of the Tulip Parade where coach loads packed with thousands of people would visit South Lincolnshire to tour the area and wonder at the sights, Tulip fields and of course Parade.

  Hope you all had a busy weekend and kudos to those of you opting out of Mother's Day and doing weddings - you have nerves of steel! - with all the complications of imported products recently it certainly has not been without challenges! The consensus is that many consumers left Mother's Day to the very last minute - most florists receiving a flurry of orders late in the week or even at the weekend. Many large shops putting the brakes on with in answerphone messages, banners on websites and social media posts. Seems many consumers 'simply forgot' too much...

  Where there's flowers there is hope - and let us hope as much as we can for the current situation worldwide to improve. Last week we donated some boxes of Daffodils to brighten up some dull days and give a bit more hope to communities across the UK. Flowers are a fabulously mindful product for making people feel better and with the situation in #Ukraine affecting so many people worldwide, we have to use what we have to help where we can. The blue and yellow heart I made has been travelling around the local outlet shopping centre to...
