Something crazy’s going on! We’ve never seen a week where plant sales volumes go up on the previous week this far into the year. Last week’s plant sales volumes in the GTN Bestsellers Epos data were up by 5% on half-term week and up by a staggering 42% on the same week last year.
Primula sales last week were more than double the same week last year, moving them up to No 2 behind Cyclamen.
Erysimum sales have continued at a high level, three times the volumes of last year.
Poinsettia were the highest climber of the week but sales were down on last year, probably linked to the lower Christmas sales caused by the lockdown.
