“Our cli­mate is too cold to grow some crops”

The People's Friend - - Chat -

Jayne Dyas, of the Bri­tish Grow­ers As­so­ci­a­tion, said, “We have to im­port some pro­duce, such as let­tuce, cour­gettes and broc­coli, dur­ing our win­ter months as our cli­mate is too cold to grow such crops then. Many UK farm­ers have land or con­tracts with grow­ers in Spain to sup­ply fresh pro­duce in win­ter. There are sea­sonal al­ter­na­tives and, of course, frozen veg­eta­bles are also avail­able.”
