Make hay while the sun shines, says GTN Bestsellers
A period of sunny, warmer weather that will spark daffodils into flowering could be great news for garden centres. After the first snow a few weeks ago the GTN Bestsellers All Products index is holding just above last year. A few good weeks to end February will set us all in good stead for March.
At present the Met office is forecasting that “temperatures should remain around or a touch above average” through to the end of the month. Then for March they are forecasting Atlantic weather rather than the drastic Beast from the East that set in last year.
A normal March that could see plant sales grow steadily will be more than welcome!
