Information is required from British flower growers and retailers for a research project.
One of our readers, a student studying a BA Hons course in Commercial Floral Design at Myerscough College in Preston, is researching the British cut flower industry and would like to know how British flower growers are surviving in this economic climate.
Is this a thriving or struggling industry?
What are the main challenges facing British growers?
Why do the British not buy more British grown flowers?
Our reader would be grateful to those in the British flower growing and retailing industry for any information to allow her to complete her dissertation.
Please post your views and responses via the comments section at the end of this article.
With the authors’ permission, we will publish the dissertation on this website.
