Dear Mr Jenrick,

As published in the news this week, another crisis is about to hit the horticultural industry, with millions of items going to waste soon and local businesses facing bankruptcy.

As many of the people in the Covid-19 high risk group would have found solace this time of year tending to their patio, garden, borders or balconies, they would have also kept their mental health in a good state.

So could you and your team, together with the horticultural industry, look into adding plants to the essentials parcels that are being delivered to vulnerable people, as well as finding ways to keep gardening centres open as long as we all practise social distancing?

This would have many benefits:

1) Maintain the mental health of millions of people in our country

2) Stop hundreds of businesses in the horticultural industry going bankrupt 

3) Stop millions of items going to waste 

The British people are a nation of plant and garden lovers, let's keep Britain blooming and people smiling this spring!
