High shipping costs force price rise
People hoping to spruce up their gardens, ready for when we can socialise in them again, may face problems with their seating plans due to a lack of outdoor furniture.
A combination of high demand and shipping problems is being blamed for the shortages.
Furniture giant Ikea is among the retailers experiencing supply issues.
Companies say that shipping costs to import goods from countries such as China have risen dramatically.
The Leisure and Outdoor Furniture Association, which represents 70 manufacturers and wholesalers, said all of its members are having problems with garden furniture supply.
Gina Hinde from the association said that last year its members were being charged about $1,200 to get a container over from China and Indonesia. This year, they're being charged anywhere between $7,000 and $10,000.
"Some have even been quoted up to $17,000 to bring one container over," she told BBC Radio 5 Live's Wake Up To Money programme.
