A Woolworths spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia: ‘With the arrival of spring, we know customers are eager to spend more time in their yard and gardens and are looking for new ways to spruce up their homes.

‘The meerkat statues have been exceptionally popular with our customers and most of our stock has nearly sold out.’

Gardening and floral categories have grown almost 40 per cent more at Woolworths and almost 20 per cent more at BIG W compared to last year.
