"Instead of producing the cheapest possible product we should be producing the best possible product, whether that is in nurseries or farming." - Nicholas Marshall on Brexit.

"I forced myself to buy plants online and actually, I found I really enjoyed it."
"What you can do is sit in bed shopping and you manage to get quite a lot more shopping done than you can in a garden centre."
"It's an opportunity."
 - Nicholas Marshall on Internet sales for plants.
