Weather, Peat or Price?


Has the wet weather in January been the main reason for the drop in Growing Media sales volumes?  Or is there a reluctance to buy peat based growing media products?  Or have there been less Early Bird discount growing media offers this January? 


As the No 1 Bestselling line in our chart is Evergreen Garden Care Levington Essential Multi Purpose 50 litres it is probably a mix of the weather and less promotions.  Westlands New Horizon All Purpose Peat Free compost sits at No 11.

  • Evergreen Garden Care Levington Multi Purpose with John Innes 40 litres is the highest new entry for the week at No 2.
  • Westland The Gardener's Multipurpose Compost 50 litres was the highest chart re-entry at No 29.
  • Westland New Horizon Veg Compost 50 litres increased sales by 375% to re-enter at No 45.
