Double growing media sales fuelled by new gardeners
For the third summer week running, growing media sales have been double last year's levels. This must be fuelled by new gardeners and gardening in pots and containers.
That now means growing media sales through garden centres, when they have been open, as recorded by GTN Bestsellers are only 11% down on last year now.
Where centres offered delivery and click and collect for growing media during the seven weeks of closure sales volumes will now be well up on last year.
Highlights of the week were:
- Bloomin Amazing Soil Enricher 70 litres moves up 4 places to be in the Top 5 Growing Media Bestsellers for the week.
- Bulrush Top Soil 25 litres in the highest re-entry at No 15.
- Melcourt All-Purpose Peat-Free Compost 50 litres is another re-entry at No 16.
