With so much to take into account, from quality to cost to durability to design, knowing when to buy your garden furniture is essential.

One of our most frequent questions is "when should I buy my garden furniture?", and it's a great question to ask. Whether you're looking to shop when the most options are available, or want to make sure you're ready for the first rays of sunshine, you'll soon be an expert in buying your outdoor lounging and dining sets at the perfect time...


Unfortunately yes, it does depend on you. In particular, factors such as:

    • if you're waiting on a particular collection to release
    • when you need your furniture by
    • if you suddenly need some extra seating or a replacement chair.

However, as a general rule you should buy your furniture around February to March. By shopping before garden season begins in the spring, you'll have the most choice thanks to guaranteed stock availability.


Although we are the UK's largest garden furniture stockists, we still recommend buying from us out of season to get the pieces you want before someone else does.

Thanks to the UK's unpredictable climate, buying early while the weather's still dreary can be offputting. But, don't let the rain dictate when you shop. With the right Covers and Storage, you won't have to worry about keeping your new furniture safe, clean and protected.


Our large warehouse space means we can store your furniture for you until you're ready for it to transform your garden once the weather warms up.


For design-savvy shoppers looking to scoop up the latest styles and innovations in outdoor furniture, remember that retailers will give you plenty of time to pre-order collections before they arrive.


New launches can take place at any point in the year, although they do tend to be before garden season begins in Spring. You can find all of our new arrivals here. We recommend taking steps like ordering your Outdoor Furniture Catalogue ahead of time, following brands on social media and subscribing to newsletters to be the first to find out about new collections.


If you're looking to save on your outdoor furniture, you'll be wondering when sales are held. Sales can run throughout the year, but you can count on the typical sale calendar to dictate their timings, for example Black Friday, Winter Sales, etc.


At Bridgman, we very rarely discount our furniture. You can find ex-display sets and perfect condition seconds in our Clearance Collection, alongside furniture that is being discontinued to make way for new collections. Remember that although you may want to wait for sales, our bestselling and most popular collections are rarely on offer.


Join our newsletter to be the first to know as soon as new products are added to our Clearance. Our newsletter will also deliver exclusive offers, new arrivals and inspirations straight to your inbox.
