After spending some time researching a particular shrub that I would like to add to my ‘blue bed’ I signed up to a plant retail website based in the Netherlands. Nothing unusual in this but when attempting to add my address to the membership page I was rather disenchanted to be unable to find the UK in the drop-down menu and looked at contacting the Customer Service page for help. However, this was obviously a common observation as I was then even more disenchanted and very aggravated to read the following: “Unfortunately, it is currently impossible to export our large assortment to the UK under Brexit conditions. We ship over 600 varieties per shipment, for which we would have to send more paperwork than plants. We regret we have to stop supplying the UK after more than 30 years, hope to be back in the near future. You can still order for destinations in the EU”.
I did not vote for Brexit and this is so frustrating!
