Gardman debuts at Solex

Gardman showed its new Garden Leisure range at the outdoor furniture show Solex held this week at Birmingham's NEC.

The range includes Te Set furniture, a folding garden bench, seated arbour, gazebos and parasols.

Also in display was solar lighting and garden furniture covers.

Bosmere launched Thunder Grey garden furniture covers and said they had seen 30 per cent increases in sales this summer.

Average garden furniture sales increases are 25 per cent, say show organisers the Leisure and Outdoor Furniture Association.

Top increases are 85 per cent as shortages hit some areas of the sector.

Bosmere said it met demand because it makes its own covers, but some other companies ran out of some colours and styles.
