Veg-2-Grow sales start to pick up

Veg-2-Gro sales grew by a quarter week on week as gardeners prepared themselves for better weather.


If the weather forecast is correct there could be a run on seed potatoes and onion sets this weekend. Fingers crossed!

Highlights were:

  • Taylors Seed Potatoes Arran Pilot 2.5kg moved up 25 places to be the most popular seed potato of the week.
  • Taylors Shallots Red Value Pack were the highest re-entry of the week, back in at No 9.
  • Appropriately, Taylors Rhubarb Valentine is the highest new entry into the GTN Chart. Clearly love grows in the veg plot too!

Better weather saw a drop in Wild Bird Care sales, but they are still running at 25% up year on year to date.

Highlights were:

  • Westland Peckish Complete 2kg + 50% Free is the highest chart climber, up 35 places to No 9.
  • Gardman Peanuts 2kg were the highest re-entry with a 200% plus increase in sales volumes.
  • Smart Chapelwood Heavy Duty Seed Feeder Medium stayed at No 3 for the second week.
