At present Newton Nursery has back orders in excess of 3.6 million trees. Recent extreme weather events, in particular heavy rain creating flooded areas, and soft ground conditions at the nursery, meaning that the Nursery have been unable to lift grade and despatch sufficient plants to fulfil these orders. Under normal conditions the combination of nursery grown stock and already placed external plant supply would have been sufficient, however these weather events have created a shortfall of 1.43 million trees to fulfil these orders, which FLS require to purchase.
