The weather was partly to blame for the drop in overall sales last week but a bigger influence was the moving of Mother's Day.
Last year week 10 benefitted from Mothers Day providing a spike in sales despite the Beast from the East, but of course we have to wait until the end of March this year.
In the meantime we have garden re-leaf day to celebrate on Friday 22nd March. What have you got planned to increase footfall, sales, have some fun and raise money for the Greenfingers Charity? #getinvolved at www.greenfingerscharity.org.uk/gardenreleaf
