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 are priced the same: for example, 3kg for £3.20 or 1/2kg for 65p. 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 3 new varieties:
  • "Markies", a maincrop reported as good for frying, good for long storing and resistant to many potato diseases.
  • "Setanta", another main crop, reported as good for chips and roasting and blight resistant.
  • "Jazzy", an early, very heavy cropper
These will be available in ½kg packets, selling at 65p.

AUTUMN ONION SETS

The Autumn onion sets are now in stock. They are:
  • "Red Winter" priced at £1.80 for 500gm
  • "Shakespeare" priced at £1.45 for 500gm
Compare these prices with other suppliers and you will be pleasantly surprised!

GARLIC

Garlic bulbs are expected in by the end of September and the following varieties will be stocked: Provence Wight, Early Purple Wight, Solent Wight, and Mersley Wight

SEED CATALOGUES

The seed catalogue of D T Brown will be available at the Store shortly. 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 expected soon. There is a different procedure to order from this catalogue and this will be explained when you pick up their catalogue.
