Fervour to grow sees record growing media sales


The fervour to grow more in pots, in gardens, in allotments and indoors, and the significant change in attitude and activity is no better illustrated than with our sales of growing media for September over the past seven years.


For six years, September sales were basically static, but this year sales jumped by 72% to reach a level that exceeds the amount of growing media normally expected to be sold in June.


The last week of September sees a new entrant in four lines from Evergreen Horticulture. Composts with John Innes content saw the biggest week on week increases.

  • Evergreen Horticulture Top Soil 25 litres was the highest placed new entry at No 13.
  • Westland Multipurpose Compost with John Innes 50 litres moved up 5 places to No 3.
  • Westland Multipurpose with John Innes 20 litres plus 5 litres extra was the highest chart re-entry at No 36.
