Forthcoming Events

We are very pleased to say that we are now holding our talks in person and we have outings planned this year.  Our first outing is to Winterbourne House and Garden on Saturday 14th May.

Our trading shed on Oakley Road is open as normal (every Saturday morning) from the 5th of February 2022 (potato day) until the end of October.

Our next talk is at our new venue, St Anne's Catholic primary school on Washington Road.    On Wednesday 25th May Gillian Taylor will be telling us all about roses in her talk "For the Love of Roses".  The doors open at 7:30 and the talk will start at 7:45pm.  There will be refreshments available after the talk.

Trading Shed

Our Trading Shed on Oakley Road is open every Saturday morning from 10am to 11:30am, from the beginning of February to the end of October.   We sell everything for your allotment and gardening needs and we are confident you will be pleasantly surprised by our prices (and expertise!).  We have seed potatoes in stock, ready chitted for planting.

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, inlcuding RHS recommedned peat free compost. We also stock a variety of pest control products and other sundries like garden canes.  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 : 14th May 2022 at Oakley Road allotments 10-11am.
