China sees more than 10 per cent gardening market growth while several western markets fall

The latest Home and Garden report from market analyst Euromonitor International says the home and garden business "remains weak" in developed worldwide markets.

By contrast growth of more than 10 per cent in 2011/12 came in China, Indonesia, Argentina, Turkey and the former Soviet republic.

Euromonitor recorded negative growth in Australia, France, Italy, Spain, Sweden and Ireland.

Growth of between five and 10 per cent was seen in North America, Brazil, India, South Africa and Germany.

Growth of up to five percent was recorded in Poland, Japan and the Philippines.

The US has 36 per cent of the worldwide gardening market, says Euromonitor.

Chinese household spending reached $US 280 a year and is set to reach $425 by 2017.

Specialist retailers had 70 per cent of total value sales in 2011/12.
