There is a very broad definition of gardening used in this Report, covering everything from growing stock, gardening tools and sundries to those consumer products bought for the garden such as furniture, barbecues and sheds. The main categories and their broad definitions break down as follows:
- Growing stock – plants, shrubs, trees, bulbs, seeds
- Gardening equipment – lawnmowers, other power tools, hand tools, irrigation equipment
- Garden buildings – conservatories, sheds, greenhouses
- Garden chemicals and growing media – compost, peat, chippings, fertiliser, pesticides, weed killers
- Garden furniture and barbecues– furniture, parasols, patio heaters, cushions, barbecues
- Enhancement features and sundries – statuary, aggregates, etc.
The Report also makes reference to other products stocked and services provided by garden retailers (such as Christmas decorations, pets and cafés) to develop footfall and counteract the inherent problems of seasonality in gardening.
Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Jane Westgarth, a leading analyst in the Retail sector, her extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
The outlook for garden products retailers is tough, as competition intensifies, both in-store and online. B&Q will build on its strengths as a place where novice gardeners can get something to cheer up their plots easily and will pick up market share because of the disruption at Bunnings-owned Homebase. Meanwhile large garden centres will continue to differentiate by creating attractive leisure destinations, while maintaining expertise, good choice and quality in their garden departments. Argos will benefit from opening outlets within the larger branches of its owner, Sainsbury’s and Sainsbury’s will benefit from greater exposure of its ranges within the Argos website – this will particularly benefit sales of garden furniture and tools. The charge of the value sector will continue, led by B&M and The Range as well as the discount supermarkets. Plus, more online presence, particularly for fresh plants, will entice more shoppers away from stores.
