As you are all aware, since the onset of the Covid pandemic, ‘supply issues’ and price increases have become the norm. And since the war in Ukraine began a year ago, supply shortages and delays have increased and inflation has affected the prices of goods and services universally. These factors have affected Harlequin’s Gardens. We have been slow to increase our prices even as many of our costs have increased dramatically. This year it is necessary for us to raise some prices to catch up with the higher costs of materials such as nursery pots, soil products, seeds, plants, and labor.
