Plant sales stall...but tulips bloom
After a mild January, snow and generally cold weather at the start of February saw plant sales stall to less than half of sales in the same week last year.
Whilst disappointing, losing sales in February is far less of an issue than losing sales in March and April as we did last year. Fingers crossed!
- Planted Tulips were the winners last week, moving 19 places up the chart to No 4.
- Planted bulbs are gaining ground with four of the Top 5 plants being planted bulb genus.
- Rosemary plants, Rosmarinus, were more popular last week, re-entering at No 24.
All Plants volume sales change: Week on week DOWN 27.1%. Year to date vs 2018 DOWN 9.7%, vs 2017 UP 25.6%.
