Growing media sales suffer in the rain
The high rainfall of the past few weeks has put paid to a lot of gardening activity and that has shown through for growing media sales.
After a good start to the month, sales at the end dropped like a stone and the month ended down 3% on last year. It was however the second best sales total for September over the past six years.
Highlights of the week were:
- Bulb planting activity stimulated some growing media sales with Westlands 20 litre Bulb planting compost increasing sales to move up 14 places to No 9.
- Evergreen Garden Care’s Levington Bark Bale, 100 litres, was the highest chart climber, up 18 places to No 13.
- As attention moves indoors Pughs Cactus Gravel saw the biggest percentage increase of the week to re-enter our chart at No 41.
