As well as offering a huge range of outdoor plants from climbers to pond plants we pride ourselves in sourcing the majority of our plant stock from local growers, supporting local business and cutting our carbon footprint.
Sourcing locally is important to us not only for these reasons but as a business Parker’s has signed up to the HTA’s statement on the management of risk posed by Xylella fastidiosa. Xylella fastidiosa a disease affecting a number plant species in areas of Europe and as a business we are very serious about managing the risk to the UK. Parker’s Garden Centres have signed up to the following statement.
““We have taken the decision NOT to knowingly purchase any host plants originating from regions where the disease Xylella is known to exist. The decision has been taken after detailed consideration as to the potential catastrophic impact the introduction of the disease could have to the UK environment, coupled with the ever increasing number of host plant genera of this disease. This is in line with DEFRA’s good practice recommendations.”
