Coronavirus: Garden centres in England to reopen next week

Garden centres in England will be allowed to reopen next week as one of the early steps to ease coronavirus lockdown measures, a senior government source has told the BBC.

Centres can reopen from Wednesday if they comply with social distancing.

Nursery bosses must control the number of people inside their shops so customers can keep 2m from each other, while in-store cafes must stay closed.

The Welsh Government has said garden centres can open from Monday.

Wales’ First Minister Mark Drakeford announced only “modest” changes to the lockdown on Friday – also including that people would be allowed to exercise more than once a day.
