Garden Products suffered from their usual opening of Christmas blues this week. Despite plant sales and growing media sales going up the increase in footfall and sales generated by Christmas openings didn’t materialise in any overall increase for Garden Products.
That said, 32 out of the Top 50 lines in the GTN Chart increased their sales week on week and most of those were core gardening lines, so it’s probably the more decorative gardening lines that have suffered when Christmas decorations go on sale.
Tildenet’s Weed Block Mat Bulk Roll 1x100m is the highest re-entry in the chart, back in at No 4.
Choice Marketing Supplier of the Year, Woodlodge’s Terracotta Pot, 14cm, are the highest new entry for the week at No 7.
Gardman Frostgard 17gsm 8m x 1.5m roll, a perennial winter season bestseller makes it’s first showing of the year at No 16.
