After last year’s brilliant May and June for plant sales everyone said we should wait until the end of June 2019 to make real year-on-year comparisons. And the results are in: Year to date plant sales volumes are down by 6% on 2018 but up by 2% on 2017.
So, what would you rather have a mad May and June after a poor March and April or a poor May and June after a good March and April? Answers to firstname.lastname@example.org please.
