Getting ready for the growing season

As the new growing season approaches you can stock up on a variety of essentials without leaving the allotment site.

The large container will be manned for the next four Saturdays (March 10, 17, 24 and 31) from 10am to 11am to allow members to buy goods at very competitive prices.

Items on sale are: 1.5m wide fleece at 20p per metre; Growmore at £1 per kg; garden lime at £1.50 per 2kg; chicken pellets at £9 per 20kg bag; blood, fish and bone at £1 per kg; 8ft bamboo canes at 40p each.

All proceeds go to the association’s funds.


Roll up for some fleece


Fleece is the latest addition to the range of goods being sold by the committee. It is 1.5m wide and costs 20p per metre. It is available only in multiples of one metre.

It can be bought at the large container which will be manned this Saturday (February 17) and on Saturday week (February 24) from 10am to noon.

Garden lime, Growmore, chicken pellets and bamboo canes are also available (Super Savings).

Going free
