'Knowing their Onions' sees Autumn Grow Your Own rise to new high
Normally, as we start paying attention to Christmas sales, we wouldn’t be reporting on Veg-2-Gro sales anymore but this year they are not fading away – they even increased week on week at the end of the month. It seems that ‘new’ gardeners are knowing their onions and getting them planted for next year.
For the month, GTN Bestsellers Epos data shows that sales reached a new month high, up 42% on last year.
Onion sets, shallots and garlic bulbs lead the way at the end of the month with sales of the GTN Bestsellers Top 10 (all onions garlic and shallots) up by 54% on the same week last year.
Taylors Garlic Thermidrome moved up three places to be the No 1 Bestselling Veg-2-Gro line, closely followed by Taylors French Garlic Topadrome.
Kapiteyn Garlic Cristo was the highest re-entry at No 13.
Thompson & Morgan Broad Bean Aquadulce Claudia climbed 33 places to No 14 to be the highest placed seed pack in the GTN Chart.
