Autumn plant sales have started early, according to the GTN Bestsellers Epos data, with Pansy, Chrysanthemum, Cyclamen and Viola all selling through at levels normally seen in September right at the start of August.
That combined with continued Veg plant sales and summer injections of colour mean plant sales volumes were up by 27% last week, year on year.
Chrysanthemum were the highest chart climber, up 35 places to No 8.
Viola’s were the highest re-entry at No 18.
At the top of the chart Lavenders leapfrogged ahead of Dianthus to be the No 1 Bestselling plant of the week.
