Garden Centres set for successful season!

about 2 months ago by Natalie Smith

Our first week of spring like weather has been (and gone now it seems…) but the plans for getting the garden summer ready and it seems the garden industry is picking up in time for Spring as well.

While Garden Centre sales don’t match the record highs of this time last year, we’re currently not in any lockdowns or restrictions and so cannot directly compare. However, Garden Trade News reports “Garden Centres aggregated sales are 28% higher than the average for nine ‘normal’ years prior to the pandemic.”

Hortweek have identified a growing trend in google searches relating to Garden Centres over the past weeks, and Dobbies research shows ‘76% of Britons can’t wait to get back gardening now that spring is here’.

Ben Woodward heads up our Garden Centre recruitment for various roles within the sector. Our Garden Centre jobs are vast and varied, and of course nationwide. We regularly recruit for:

  • Growers

  • General Managers and Assistant Managers

  • Account Managers

  • Hospitality roles

  • Sales and Marketing

  • Planteria roles

With the demand for roles we’re still experiencing, we’re expecting another great year for Garden Centres!

Get in touch with Ben to see how he can be of assistance, whether you have a role you’d like help with or looking for a new opportunity within Garden Centres.
