Latest HTA figures show 2013 garden centre sales six per cent better than previous year

Garden centre sales were six per cent up in 2013, according to the HTA.

Market information manager Dave Denny said better weather and improved retail surroundings helped performance. Outdoor living was the star, up 14 per cent.

"Outdoor living was helped by better summer weather. Garden centres upped their game with in-store environment." Christmas was six per cent up last year on 2012 because of better weather, he added.

The survey covers 70 retailers overall.

Garden Centre Association figures showed its members were up 3.3 per cent in 2013.
