Florists should be classed as essential

Petition Details

I want the government to make florist shops essential.

Additional Information

Florists should be classed as an essential shop. With funerals still taking place around the UK, bereaved families still need bespoke funeral flowers. Whether this be a requirement of the deceased person stated in their Will or at the families request, this is their final goodbye and it should be carried out correctly.

Funeral flowers are incredibly personal and arrangements of this nature need to be discussed in person.

If garden centres are essential and are open to the public, surely a florist should be too.


If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
