Plant sale

Denis Vickers, who is the judge at our allotment competitions, is holding his annual plant sale at the end of the month.

If you want to place an order please write down your requirements and put them in the box in Terry Johnson’s greenhouse on plot 18.

He will coordinate the orders from plotholders and collect the plants. All orders are, of course, subject to availability.

Please place your orders with Terry by Tuesday, April 20.

He will give details about payment and collection at a later date.

Here is the list of plants on offer:

Changing times

The clocks change to British Summer Time on Sunday which means the earliest time you can start a bonfire on your plot will be 4pm.

But if you’re planning to have a fire you need to get a move on because bonfires are not allowed at all from April 1 to September 30.

Another change coming on April 1 is that the mains water will be switched on. Please remember to wear gloves whenever you are using communal water taps at the site.
