Decorating with plants drives up sales
Plant sales jumped by almost 50% last week as people continued to brave the cold weather and just wanted to get on with decorating their gardens for the summer ahead.
All Product Sales jumped back up by over a quarter, with core gardening sales and plants all up substantially week on week and against 2019.
We are on track for the month to end up by at least 20% as sales in the GTN Bestsellers garden centre Epos data have already exceeded April 2019 levels with a full week of sales still to go.
