Herb plant sales have rocketed this summer and last week the GTN Bestsellers Veg-2-Gro Top 50 herb plant sales volume was up 288% on the same week last year.
This year herb plants made up half of the Top 50 Veg-2-Gro lines accounting for 47% of the Total Top 50 volume.
Last year there were only 11 herb lines in the Top 50 making up just 26% of the sales. Is this an indication that the season for summer herb plant sales has extended through into August, or just a factor of lockdown?
Highlights of the week were:
Farplants Mint Indian 9cm was the highest new entry to the GTN chart, in at No 5.
Javado Kitchen Herbs Thymus Vulgaris climbed 36 places up the chart to No 9.
At the top of the chart, Taylors Autumn Planting Seed Potatoes Charlotte moved back up 2 places to be the No 1 Bestselling Veg-2-Gro line for the second week this year.
