Cold weather in March has delayed plant growth by up to four weeks this year, says the manager of a specialist plants centre in Shrewsbury.

Tim Robinson, from Love Plants, based at Emstrey caravan dealership Salop Leisure, has seen a boom in plant sales during June as gardeners have been busy planting in earnest. Many had delayed their planting regimes due to the late risk of night frost.

“Plant growth has been in fits and starts because of the cold temperature this spring,” he said. “Cold weather can restrict new shoots and hold back new growth and it will be interesting to see what happens to plants this summer.

“June has been a very busy month for the business, with people now getting down to planting their hanging baskets and pots for summer displays.”
