THE SHOP Summer opening starts in March.
Sunday 11-12 noon.
The first full weekend opening will be 7/8th March.
The shop is now very well stocked for the Spring and summer ahead. We have been able to introduce new lines and items that we were unable to accommodate because of lack of space in the old container. We are up to items and quantity that we had before the old shop burnt down.
We now have 5 types of compost, peat free, MP Growell, John Innes, ericaceous , and growbags. The peat free is recommended
by Which? and the RHS. Growell is also recommended by Which? and is very well liked by customers.
We also have chicken pellets and composted farmyard manure, again very much liked by customers.
Bottled goods are also available. eg. Tomato feed and liquid fertilizers. (Organic and chemical.)
Did you know that we buy 25kg bags of dry fertilisers and weigh them into 1kg and 3kg bags and this work out to be very economic,
again organic and chemical. I have done a mini survey of 2 garden centres and some of our products are half the price. !!!
We have numerous sundries, twine, cabbage collars, seed trays, bird feed, ground cover, netting and canes. So you can really stock up
So many of the items are needed on the allotment that it makes sense to buy them there , saving transport costs and pollution!
They are on the spot.
The full current price list is online HERE and on the notice board in the main car park.
We take cash or cheques .
Also we can take back the plastic bags that we weigh into for reuse. Saving one use plastic.
I hope this is useful and look forward to seeing you in the shop.
Given the current advice we will be closing the shop from this Sunday, meaning the last opportunity to buy items will be this Saturday afternoon 21st March between 2.00 and 3.00 PM.
We are sorry for the inconvenience but I'm sure you will understand the reasons behind our decision
