You may know where to buy garden furniture, but the best time to pick up your pieces remains debatable, at least until now. 

Ella Broughton who is the Head of Product at Moda Furnishings, explains that buying your furniture now will ensure you get the pieces you want amid the surge. However, there are financial benefits to buying out of season too. ‘Everyone loves a good deal, and buying out of season can be one of the best times to get your favorite set at a reduced price,’ Ella says.

‘Many retailers will be attempting to clear stock from the previous year and will offer discounts or sell at reduced prices out of season, so if there is a nice set you have had your eyes on, now might be the time to get it.’

Ella adds that now is the best time to buy patio furniture and garden pieces if you’re looking to organize your exteriors with time to spare. 

‘Buying out of season is the perfect time to enjoy short lead times meaning quicker deliveries,’ the expert explains. 

She adds that you could transform your patio in less than five weeks (if your chosen furniture is in stock) – so you can spend less time worrying about stock in spring – and more time enjoying your newly furnished outdoor space.
