Spring into life

 
Our lovely, shiny new polytunnel is now starting to fill up with seedlings which are growing away for the first of our May Plant sales on Saturday 6th & Sunday 7th May.  HOWEVER, each weekend we are finding that plenty of them are already flying off the shelves, as members are taking the opportunity to plug the gaps in their own sowings.

 
In case you are still undecided about what you are going to grow this year, or have not been able to sow your own, we currently have available to purchase a wide range of plants, of various sizes (some of them very tiny, but perfectly formed)! Veg, fruit and flowers, too many to list, although maybe I should put in a special mention for sweet peas and chrysanthemums.
 
Each weekend, we are also receiving new donations to the growing collection, so please don't chuck out your surplus seedlings.  Our volunteer team will continue to prick out until the polytunnel is full, and then we can put away our mini dibbers for another season.  Somewhere safe.  Has anyone seen that permanent marker pen?
 
Hope to see you at Fort Compost or Polytunnel Towers soon.

Heavy Duty Clear Polythene

Clear polythene, 1000 gauge, 4m metre wide, now in stock @ £2.40 / linear metre.

Recycle your used plant pots here

We are currently running short of plant pots (especially 3.5 inch) for our upcoming plant sales. Rather than sending your plant pots to landfill we would like to give them a second chance! (provided they are in good condition)

New compost delivery

Thanks to all the volunteers who showed off their honed physiques and dare devil pallet dodging skills earlier today. Our compost delivery is always the highlight of our year and, as promised, it was something to tell the grandchildren about in years to come!!

Magnificant Seven


Sunday March 19th.  Just to let you know that the barmy and brave cyclists will once again be battling to become kings of the hills of Sheffield.

They are expected to sail past the society hut between 10.50am and 11.20am and we will be on the pavement to cheer them onwards and upwards.  You may encounter a little bit of a road closure at that time, but we invite you to join us earlier- to enjoy the spectacle, or later - for all of your gardening needs, but especially compost and growbags.
