Garden Centre Association
SALES at garden centres across the country were up and down during April (2018) according to the Garden Centre Association Barometer of Trade (BoT) report.
Outdoor plant sales remained down at -12.73% compared to the same month last year but could have been much worse if the bad weather had continued says the Garden Centre Association.
