Ornamental growers have come out marginally in favour of remaining in Europe in a closely run Horticulture Week online poll.

.

With the Brexit vote on 23 June, HW asked growers ‘Do you think leaving the EU would be beneficial or detrimental to your business?’

.

Of 50 ornamental growers whose responses HW analysed, those that thought leaving would be beneficial numbered 34 per cent, while those that saw Brexit as detrimental to business was at 38 per cent. No difference was at 24 per cent and don’t knows were two per cent.

.

There was 54 per cent of growers who wanted to stay in the EU and 46 who wanted to leave.

.

More enforceable plant regulations was cited by several growers as a reason to leave.

.

Some 52 per cent of respondents thought there would be fewer plant health issues in this country if Britain left the EU, while 24 per cent said there would be no effect and 20 per cent believed there would be more risks.

.

Comments received included: “We may find that EU manufacturers may not want to market or approve new products for the UK market. The UK government could force UK growers to reduce peat use further. Plant Breeders Rights may be affected if the UK came out of the various EU breeder protection organisations. EU wide registration of a new plant may be more difficult.”

.

Opponents said: “I believe it (Brexit) will enable ornamental horticulture to increase prices to sensible levels in relation to product hardiness and quality.”

.

Another grower said: “EU regulations are strangling small non-exporting businesses for no reason in most cases. Leaving could save many from going out of business.”

.

One grower commented: “Pests and diseases would decrease. Stock would have longer shelf life and there would be hardier plants for matching the soil base. Protection and building of critical agricultural low paid unskilled jobs for UK citizens especially in rural communities. However we need to collaborate more in order to succeed. Working together is the key to UK survival as well as sustainable growth for future generations.”

.

Some 66 per cent said leaving would have no effect on staff sourcing, but 29 per cent said it would. Half said plant prices would stay the same but 31 per cent thought leaving would raise plant prices.
