Union Jack Windmill sales soar in celebration weekend

Garden Décor lines saw the biggest increases last week as the country celebrated the Royal Wedding and watched the FA Cup.  But there are great signs of real gardening activity getting going as plant feeds, pest controls and weedkillers occupy eleven of the Top 20 places in the GTN Bestsellers Garden Products Chart.

  • Fountasia’s Mini Union Jack Windmill’s were the highest chart climbers moving up 36 places to No 9.
  • Westland’s Resolva Pro Weedkiller, 1 litre, enters the chart at No 29 on the back of the new TV ad campaign.
  • Scotts Levington Tomorite, 1 litre + 30% Free, is No 1 for the fifth consecutive week.
