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 Potato order forms are now available at the store. Order now to get the variety you want, ready for delivery January/February.

We intend to stock the following varieties:
  • Earlies: Abbot, Casablanca, Foremost, Lady Christl, Maris Bard, Red Duke of York and Rocket
  • Second Earlies: Kestrel and Wilja
  • Maincrop: Cara, Desiree, Majestic, Maris Piper and Valor
  • Salad/2nd early: Charlotte
Our prices are again very reasonable this year and all varieties are priced the same: for example, 3kg for 3.15 or 1/2kg for 70p. You can order any quantity you wish. We can only stock a limited amount of each variety: so that you are not disappointed, get your orders in as soon as possible! This will also help us - if we sell out of a particular variety, we may be able to re-order.

We also intend to trial a new variety, 'Carolus', an early maincrop. These will be available in 1/2kg packets, selling at 70p. It is reported as a good all-rounder and has the RHS Award of Garden Merit.

Last year's trial of Abbot seemed successful. So, as well as trialling it again, we are also stocking it this year. It was used in the Schools Potato Challenge and it came out as the heaviest single bag in 50% of the three varieties in the challenge.

AUTUMN ONION SETS

The Autumn onion sets are now in stock. They are:
  • 'Red Winter' priced at 1.75 for 500gm and 1.00 for 250gm
  • 'Shakespeare' priced at 1.50 for 500gm and 85p for 250gm
Compare these prices with other suppliers and you will be pleasantly surprised!

  • Provence Wight 2 bulbs 3.65
  • Early Purple Wight 2 bulbs 3.50
  • Solent Wight 2 bulbs 2.30
  • Mersley Wight 2 bulbs 2.65
SEED ORDERS

The seed catalogue of D T Brown is available at the Store. Last year our order was such that members got a 50% discount on the published prices so it is worth a visit to pick up an order form. The forms need to be submitted by 19th November. Suttons catalogue is also at the Store. There is a different procedure to order from this catalogue and this will be explained when you pick up their catalogue.
