Completed petition Re-open garden centres in Wales as soon as it is possible

Re-open garden centres in Wales as soon as it is possible:
- Gardening keeps people at home
- Gardening brings significant mental and physical benefits
- Garden centres are large, airy spaces with excellent safety measures in place
- The plant supply chain cannot be switched off and on. In many cases plants go to waste if they cannot reach garden centres
- Online, click and collect and home deliveries are not the answer. They are particularly difficult for independent garden centres
