Plant prices in the UK have sunk to historic 40 year lows, with many nurseries struggling to break even.

Several nursery chains have reported large losses or, like Mahoods, have closed, partly due to plant prices slumping through over-supply and a slow sales market.

Prices as low as 90p for a Lonicera ‘Maygreen’ or even 10p for a hawthorn are about what these plants were selling for back in the 1970s. Low prices are also hurting landscapers by reducing their mark-up margins on plant reselling.

So while you may relish a cheap plants bargain, you might not have a local nursery business around to sell it to you by end 2015.
