EU views in Wales, edible flowers and cereal growing

EU views in Wales, edible flowers and cereal growing

With just over a week to go to the EU Referendum, workers in the fishing industry of North Wales are divided over whether membership of the European Union is good or bad for business. It's British Flowers Week but a little known sector of the industry is the growing of blooms for eating. Jan Billington grows a range of edible flowers in mid-Devon for use in everything from cakes to restaurant cuisine. Cereals earned British farmers £3 billion last year with wheat dominating the home market. As farmers gather in Cambridgeshire for the Cereal 2016 event, there's uncertainty about this year's harvest and concerns about global prices.
