Get ready for a half-term sales spree, says GTN Bestsellers


Overall garden centre sales for the second week of October were down on last year, according to GTN Bestsellers, but above the average for the past six years, so all is set fair for a busy half term week.


With Halloween parties, pumpkin carving and ghoulish treasure hunts being staged at many centres the welcome boost of footfall is sure to drive higher sales.
