28th April 2009:
When the conversation starts with I have a proposal for you and I get that look ( it has been over 13 years) I know that means Sarah wants her own way. We already have strong values on the environment. But after having bees added on site to the garden centre and reading a number of articles on the demise of bees Sarah is on a mission. So the proposal goes on the line of we are removing our stock of a well known rose product as it is harmful to bees. After a debate between us we agree to approach our supplier and to my surprise he has agreed for us to return them.
So for this season it will be trying to get our customers to understand why we have removed their favourite product. Values before profit.
