November growth for growing media sales

November’s growing media sales volumes have outperformed last year for the weeks 44 to 47.


GTN’s Growing Media Top 50 volumes are up by 1.3% on the same weeks last year. 


Small bags of growing media are the big movers, both of houseplant composts and multipurpose composts – there must be a lot of winter container planting going on.


This week’s highlights are:

  • Westland Gro-Sure All Purpose Compost, 25 litres, is the highest climber, up 27 places to No 9.
  • Growth Technology Houseplant Focus Repotting Mix re-entered at No 35 after doubling sales.
  • Westland Cacti & Succulent Potting Mix sales grew by 150% to be a new entry at No 42.
