Prospects for a good year of growing media sales continue but although sales for the first three weeks of March 2019 are more than double last year we are behind sales for the first three March weeks of 2017 and 2014.
Multi purpose composts account for the majority of sales and most lines in the GTN Top 50 increased sales week on week, no doubt as a result of plenty of grow your own activity. Are you making sure every seed tray or young plant sale are accompanied by bags of relevant compost? It could be just a small bag, but it’s a great extra sale.
Evergreen Garden Care Levington John Innes No3, 25 litres, is the highest chart climber last week, up 22 places to No 20.
Westland Gro-Sure All Purpose Compost, 25 litres, is a re-entry at No 29.
Westland Gro-Sure Vermiculite, 10 litre Pouch, is also a re-entry at No 45.
