JTF Wholesale sees garden sales boom

JTF Wholesale Ltd is closing in on a record August sales month for gardening.

With a week to go, sales month to date are 40 per cent up on 2015 and have been driven by strong demand for its garden furniture, BBQ and solar lighting ranges.

Year to date gardening is tracking 16 per cent up on 2015 numbers, with horticulture sales nearly double at 93 per cent up.

Gerrard Smith, JTF senior buyer, said: "We are really pleased with our results so far, especially considering the growth  is on the back of our record ever sales year in 2015.  We are supported by a strong supply base who have performed well for us in terms of supporting with innovation & maintaining availability throughout the season."
