Verdict Research have issued a report showing that the DIY and Gardening retail sector will be worth £12.9 billion by 2014. This ia an increase of 2.1% from last year. The main increase will come from sales of gardening products where sales will increase by 5.6% while DIY products will increase by 0.4%.

According to Malcolm Pinkerton who is a senior analyst at Verdict, “Gardening continues to capture the imagination of consumers; at the same time consumers have lost interest in DIY, and are less willing to invest in their homes.

“Attention is increasingly being shifted from inside our homes to outside. This has been fuelled by the aging population as well as the rise in the popularity of ‘grow your own’.”
