Festive plants on hold

Plant sales dropped below last year levels for the first week since the end of October mainly due to an apparent lag in sales of festive plants such as Poinsettia and Hellebores.


Plant managers across the country put that down to there being three more full weekends before Christmas this year where last year there was one less.

  • Poinsettia moved up to No 2 with an increase of 153%. Last year they went to the top spot in this same week.
  • Pot grown Christmas trees saw huge increases with Picea spruce trees moving up to No 5 and Abies Nordmann firs zooming up to No 13 from No 50 last week.
  • Sales of pot grown Hyacinth doubled last week to move up one place to No 4.
