Like many garden centers, Ian Byrne contacted suppliers across Europe and China to help them ship garden dwarves in the UK. Without success.

For the general manager of the Garden Center Association, Iain Wylie, this comes from the fact that supply chains have been enormous pressure due to the pandemic and blocking of the Suez canal, where a cargo cargo of 200,000 tonnes, The "Ever Given", remained stuck for six days after a sandstorm.
