Two-thirds more gardening this Autumn – Wow!


Growing media volume sales were up by 60% again last week. As a result the GTN Bestsellers Growing Media index now sits at +2.9% vs last year and that’s with zero sales being recorded during the seven weeks of Lockdown 1.


Since the start of September, using Growing Media sales as a barometer, there has been 63% more growing activity going on. That’s almost two-thirds more gardening activity this Autumn. Just think what that could lead to in the Spring…


Highlights of the week were:

  • Strulch Organic Straw Mulch 100 litres is the highest climber in the GTN Growing Media chart, up 24 places to No 19.
  • Westland Rose Planting Compost was the highest re-entry at No 30.
  • Growth Technology Citrus Focus Repotting Mix 8 litres doubled its sales to re-enter the Top 50 at No 47.
