It's been a difficult time for the UK's one thousand garden centres, as well as retail nurseries, florists and farm shops, because of the late arrival of the spring. On this May Bank Holiday though, there are high hopes for a busy day of plant-buying. Sybil Ruscoe visits Farplants in West Sussex, one of the country's largest plant wholesalers, supplying around twelve million plants a year, to learn about the journey from propagation to shop shelf.

Presented by Sybil Ruscoe. Produced by Rich Ward.
