Woodlark Nurseries sales director Steve Knibb said September was 25 per cent up and the Essex nursery is six per cent up overall this year.
He said after sales fell away in the hot summer, pot pansies has done particularly well at the end of the season, and continued to "bump along nicely". He added that the hot summer had made plants difficult to keep compact.
He said the chrysanthemum season had been good and cyclamen and poinsettia were growing well for the winter season.
Woodlark is growing 17,000 10 litre poinsettia this year for the basket market, up from 12,000 in 2013, as well as 30,000 cyclamen, which have had "phenomenal sales".
Knibb said poinsettia prices were the same as 2013 but the warm autumn had kept heating fuel costs down so far.
Bryant’s Nurseries representative Caroline Shove said: "Trade in 2014 has been pretty good, a much better year than others of late. October has gone quite nicely but is slowing down now."
She said pansies, viola with some primrose and polyanthus had been selling through to garden centres.
