Shed Opening

Our Trading Shed on Oakley Road is open every Saturday until the end of October from 10am to 11:30am.   Come and see what else we sell and be pleasantly surprised by our prices (and expertise!).  Re-opens for 2020 on Saturday 1st February for sales of seed potatoes.

The shed is well stocked with fertilisers, both organic and chemical, as well as seed and potting compost and award winner farmyard manure (always a popular item).  Don't buy cheap compost from DIY stores, buy our top quality makes - your plants will thank you for this by producing better growth, flowers and crops!  We also stock a variety of pest control products and a peat-free range of compost.  Don't forget our shed stewards will transport your heavy goods to the boot of your car as part of our old fashioned customer service.

Next Plant Sale : our next sale is in May at the Oakley Road allotments, 10-11:30am.  Donate your spare plants and seeds then buy something new, very good prices!
