    This idea is low risk and will greatly benefit people and the business It should be fairly easy to implement distancing measures in garden centres

    But just the outdoor parts of garden centres, please, not the tea rooms and gift shops, just yet.

    Anything that helps people to stay active and engaged through this situation has got to be good for physical and mental well-being. Gardening is good for the soul.

    Garden centres are at least as low risk as supermarkets and an important part of the economy.

    Gardening however small, even growing things in pots indoors has been cited as being good for our mental health. There are enough gardening programmes on TV telling us that. Trying to buy seeds on line is proving very difficult. It is also something that children can take part in, even learning a bit of patience waiting for the first shoots to appear!

    There was another thread about garden centres (I thought they were going to manage multiple threads) - but I believe that this is at the same level of risk as supermarkets and just as important for the health and well being for people whether you have a window box, a garden or an allotment.

    Absolutely agree. Social distancing should be easy to achieve at most garden centres.
