Global Impact of Coronavirus Pandemic on Garden Centres

There is no doubt that the coronavirus pandemic is impacting the ornamental horticultural industry in the middle of its busiest growing and selling period. Government’s strategies to stop the spread of COVID-19 have been changing the way garden centres operate around the world.

AIPH – International Association of Horticultural Producers – sent out a short survey to a selection of its members to give them a platform to share their specific situations. We asked if the garden centres were open and if so, how were they operating. If not, what were the alternatives for growers to sell their products?
