Jacquie Penrose started this petition to Government

The garden centres and nurseries are shut because of coronavirus, but we are often told how essential for health and wellbeing the natural world is. Gardens, balconies, even window sills can provide much-needed solace and sustenance, yet the garden centres will have to destroy huge quantities of spring-ready plants. We could be using this isolation time to grow more vegetables, grow more pollinator-friendly plants, create green refuges outside the door, but instead all that potential is going to waste. Garden centres and nurseries could close their cafes and gift sections to concentrate on the sale of plants and gardening supplies, and set up the same queueing and distancing rules as the supermarkets. I would ask the Government to include these centres on the list of essential suppliers, to help the isolated and save so much waste.
