Buy your hard wood garden furniture set before prices rise

29/09/2010 If you're looking to get your hands on a good value hard wood garden furniture set, then you should get moving now.

Neil Gow, the director of the Garden Industry Manufacturers Association, told Horticulture Week suppliers have been seeing their costs rising, and this means consumers could be paying more for their hard wood garden furniture sets.

"Prices have been too low for too long," he said.

According to the news provider, the cost of supplying garden furniture has risen across the board, and this is coupled with the increase in VAT to 20 percent in January.

Mr Gow said: "Garden furniture is more affected than other products because there have been a lot of rises in raw material and transport costs."

He was speaking following the Glee trade show, which was held at the NEC in Birmingham between September 20th and 22nd. At the show, prizes were also handed out to some of the best new innovations in garden furniture and design. ADNFCR-3488-ID-800089112-ADNFCR
