Preparations for next year are driving growing media sales at the moment.
Cuttings activity, plus digging veg and plant beds, meant that sales of multipurpose with John Innes and manure lines were the main areas of sales increases in a week when overall Top 50 Growing media volumes dropped by 3.9%. This is probably linked to the drop in footfall caused by the unseasonally warm weekend.
Scotts Levington Multipurpose with John Innes 50 litres is the highest chart climber, up 30 places to No 13.
Westland Gro-Sure Farmyard Manure 50 litres moves up seven places to No 8 on the back of a 15% sales increase.
Bord na Mona Vital Earth Organic Garden Compost 50 litres jumps 11 places to No 6.
