After two wetter and colder weeks the sunshine has got people back into the mood for buying veg plants and seeds to keep their veg gardens growing. Sales volumes in the GTN Bestsellers Epos data have jumped back to the ‘new normal’ levels, up by over 40% on the same week last year.
As seed potatoes for Autumn planting sold through so quickly in August, this year’s chart for the first week of September is dominated by onion and garlic sales, plus plenty of winter veg plants.
Highlights of the week were:
Taylors Garlic Marco comes straight back in as the No 1 Bestselling Veg-2-Gro line.
Quantil Purple Sprouting Broccoli Strips move up 18 places to No 2.
Quantil Cabbage Pointed (Sweetheart) Strips are the highest chart mover, up 26 places to No 8.
