Gardening in Romania - New Market Research Report

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Sun Sep 06 2015

Gardening is a common activity in rural areas in Romania, where inhabitants use their land mostly for subsistence farming, but also for decorative purposes, with the latter trend becoming increasingly evident over recent years. Rural dwellers tend to plant fruit and vegetables in their back gardens, while they usually like to plant flowers in the front of their houses. Furthermore, they tend to plant a lot of fruit trees on their land. Romanian people value their gardens and they usually maintain them themselves. In Romania, it is considered shameful for house-dwellers to not to have a well-tended garden. Gardening in Romania is adapted to a temperate climate, with the gardening period usually lasting between March and October.

Competitive Landscape

Husqvarna, owned by Husqvarna Padure & Gradina SRL in Romania, remained the best performing brand in gardening in 2014, with a retail value sales share of 3%. Its retail value sales are represented by gardening power tools, one of the most rapidly growing products in gardening in Romania, and lawn mowers. The company benefits from wide distribution and strong brand recognition. The second most important player in gardening in Romania is Bosch, which is also mostly present within gardening power tools and lawn mowers. Gardena, a brand dedicated exclusively to gardening products, is owned by Husqvarna AB at the GBO level but by Madex International in Romania. The Gardena brand has a presence in the majority of the large chained retailers in the country, covering categories such as watering, gardening power tools, lawn mowers, and gardening hand tools.
