Autumn activity in the garden drives up sales
Autumn planting activity is as strong as ever as we head towards October. Sales of Tete a Tete bulbs hold on at the top of the GTN All Garden Products Top 20 Chart and sales of Cyclamen, Pansies and Violas accounted for 36% of all plant sales according to EPoS data supplied for GTN Bestsellers.
After the heatwave gardeners appear to be making up for lost time with Growing Media sales up 58% compared to the same week last year.
One area that is not beating last year is Wild Bird Care Sales, our data indicates sales down 35% on the same week last year even taking into account the earlier sales of the Gardman Poppy feeders. As Chapelwood is sold to Smart Garden we wonder how the re-emergence of this once major brand will impact on the GTN Bestsellers Charts in the future.
