Noticed a shortage in tomatoes this Winter? Heres why…
Our winter crops are well underway and there is Piccolo, Yelorita, Roterno, Elegance and Strabena available from Sandyland Nurseries.
However, there are fewer winter crops that have been planted this year because of the high energy costs. It is not just in the UK but throughout Europe. The reason is that supplementary lighting is required to produce at this time of year and if you’re not generating on site or using low energy lighting such as the LED lights then it is a huge challenge.
It is challenging times for all growers in the UK. We are all committed to improving our efficiencies by using less energy, therefore less carbon, and more sustainable materials.
