Fallen Fruits reports garden centre sales growth

Garde giftware company Fallen Fruits is 19 per cent up.

Garden giftware company, Fallen Fruits has reported a 19 per cent growth in turnover year on year for the financial year 2014/15, a result that follows on from a 24 per cent growth figure for the previous financial year.

Early results from the current year show sales again up by another seven per cent.

Managing director Michael Hall said, "This is mostly due to our increasing sales in the garden centre channel and within that is largely attributable to massive repeat orders of existing lines. Key areas are furniture, garden entertainment and party products and our Secrets de Potager range of stylish, kitchen oriented giftware."

Fallen Fruits specialises in themed and designer collections inspired by both by nature and the impetus to recycle. The company offers 16 themed ranges plus miscellaneous garden giftware and retailers can list these individually or buy into the Fallen Fruits ‘shop within a shop’ merchandising concept.

Hall added: "We offer perfect lifestyle choices for style conscious garden centre shoppers as well as ideal gift options, even including wedding or setting up home potential. Fallen Fruits has fantastic appeal for both gardening enthusiasts and consumers who just want to enjoy their outdoor space. It’s a real opportunity for garden centres to maximise their consumer appeal."
