State of the Industry Report

Every year, Garden Center magazine releases its State of the Industry report, highlighting projected trends, the financial health of the industry, top performing products and departments and more actionable information to help grow your business and thrive. The data is collected by Readex Research, a nationally recognized independent research company, via an online survey of independent garden centers from the U.S. and Canada.

This year, our State of the Industry Report examined the health of the economy during the past decade since the start of The Great Recession, comparing results from previous years' surveys to 2017 data.
