‘Christmas’ compensates for poor Black Friday week
Gardening sales took a tumble last week as Black Friday took people’s attention away from gardening despite continued balmy weather.
The GTN Bestsellers Plants and Growing Media indices dropped by over 30% while high street stores were very busy.
Christmas sales in garden centres did rise by 32% to compensate as footfall started to grow towards the winter peaks which we all hope will come over the next three weeks.
