Re: gardening boom


As to ornamentals, a similar thing happened after 911. People stayed home more, some of it from fear. When they stayed home more they were more inclined to make their own environment more pleasing which enhanced landscaping materials sales. Now with gas prices such as they are, they again stay home more, and spend on enhancing their environment. Money spent on gas is not renewable, doesn't increase in value. Money spent on gardens has a payback value.

Interesting. In my experience, the ornamental side of the business
gets better, too. When times get tough, people seem to be interested
in planting more of everything. It's kind of like comfort food.
