For those of our members who may regards themselves as more serious gardeners, there is still time to place an order for potatoes etc, and we still have one or two bags of autumn planting onions and garlic available if you’re quick. The merchandiser has been freshly stocked with Mr Fothergill seeds, and we are able to offer a discount on purchases costing more than a tenner. This also applies to items which are not in stock, but which we may be able to order for you.
In spite of the current drought-like conditions, many local allotment holders are choosing to cover their plots during the winter season, to protect the soil from the inevitable deluges, to minimize the loss of nutrients, and to suppress weeds. Should you be considering this option, we have a number of different ground cover materials in stock.
Our autumn work parties have failed to get going yet, but the time is nigh! Depending on the weather, Saturday November 10th is looking like a possibility. If you are interested in helping doing a bit of cutting back and tidying up, and are likely to be free, please let us know.
So, we will now be closed on Saturdays, until the excitement of the potato delivery drags us from our beds towards the end of January. Not to mention the second annual potato in a bucket competition
