Coronavirus lockdown: Taxi drivers plant a seed of hope in troubled times

The Garden Centre Association sent the NPHTA and the National Taxi Association a list of its members who are still selling plants but need help with deliveries.

Iain Wylie, of the GCA, added: “If garden centres can distribute their plants in this way, we will be grateful. It will go some way to ease the problem with lockdown.”

The Horticultural Trades Association has set up a website – plantsnearme.hta.org.uk – to let taxi firms know who is still selling plants.

The HTA’s Martin Simmons said: “It’s great that the Daily Express has come up with this initiative.”

In Leicester Tracey Whitbread of Swift Fox Cabs described helping the garden centres as “a great opportunity”.

People around Chichester, West Sussex, were being given a helping hand by a firm set up in response to the coronavirus crisis, Hope Plants. It is ferrying plants ordered online or over the phone to local customers.
