Please find below recent update from our main supplier:-
"Just to add a little more to this year’s challenge, the worst peat harvest in Northern Europe for 15 years, very heavy and dense peat, Environmental Legislation vastly reducing the amount of peat available in the Republic of Ireland and the global interruption of supply of coir, horticultural textiles and plant pots caused by the pandemic will result in us all going to have a roller coaster of a year"
The 60ltr Clover Multi Purpose are still available.
Nobody likes price increases but in the current climate they were going to happen. Unfortunately, the days of quality, cheap compost are over. We have kept increases to a minimum but cannot guarantee that these prices will not have to increase again as the cost of transport, manufacturing under Covid secure conditions and the availability of raw materials start to be reviewed by the manufacturers across the world"

In the light of the current lockdown, the hut will remain closed for the next few weeks.
If things go to plan, depending on the weather, and on our suppliers, we expect potatoes to be delivered during the last week of January. With this in mind, we will ask anyone who has ordered potatoes (and other items) to collect them from us on the weekend following their arrival – probably either January 23rd or January 30th. Once we know for certain, we will let you know, and will provide details as to exactly how and at what time we would like you to fetch them.
We are aware that there are often members who have not pre-ordered, and who would normally pop in to buy off the shelf! I am sure that you will appreciate the possible difficulties with this, this year. As soon as we know what surplus stocks we have, we will email out again, and work out some sort of system for making them available to those who want them.
Similarly, if you have ordered seeds through the Kings Seeds scheme we will contact you directly as soon as they have arrived with collection, or delivery details!
On this rather cold, dreary and damp day in January, summer days seem like an awful long way in the future. Once again, it seems very unlikely that we will be able to stage a full-scale plant sale in May, but we are trying to work out if there are other ways in which we could possibly match up plants with people. Suggestions welcome!
Needless to say, we continue to hope that you, and your loved ones, are safe and well, and wish you a Very Happy New Year!
