We have in stock over 200 items such as gloves, fleece, blood fish and bone, compost, Growmore, netting, string and bean poles. We will also order your potatoes for you. All our prices are competitive. You will be served by fellow gardeners, so please come and pay us a visit.

SEED POTATOES

Seed potatoes are now in the Store and ready for collection.

For those members who have not pre-ordered we still have some varieties available.

All are priced the same; for example, 3kg for £2.90 or 1/2kg for 60p.

We are also trialling 2 new varieties 'Abbot', a first early, and 'Pippa', a salad potato. They are available in ½ kg packets selling at 60p.

ONIONS AND SHALLOTS

We have been able to maintain our low price again this year and we now have the following onion sets at the Store:

Sturon, Stuttgart and Rumba.

They are bagged in 250gm and 500gm lots. For 250gm you get between 80 and 100 sets (depending on the variety) and obviously twice that amount for 500gm. They are at a very reasonable price (compare our price with your seed catalogues) – 250gm cost 85p and 500gm will cost you £1.10!

The red onions, Red Kamal, will be in the store in about mid-March. (Planted too early and they tend to bolt).

We also have the following Shallots:

Golden Gourmet – 500gm - £1.25 (approximately 26 sets)
Red Sun – 500gm - £1.25 (approximately 20 sets)

SEED ORDERS

For those members who pre-ordered seeds, they are ready for collection from the store. There has been a 50% discount for D T Brown seeds and 40% for Suttons. Well worth putting in an order, I think.
