Plot fees and seed orders

Plot fees fall due at the beginning of November (Rules) but you may find it convenient to pay at the end of the AGM on Monday (Annual General Meeting).

The fees for next year will again remain at £25 for a full plot and £12.50 for a half plot.

You will also be able to place your orders from the Kings Seeds Catalogue (Kings Seeds) after the meeting. Please note, though, that if you are intending to pay both your plot fees and for seeds you will need to make separate payments. You won’t be able to pay for both using just one cheque.

It may feel as if it’s only five minutes since you dug up this year’s potatoes but it’s already time to start thinking about next year’s crop.

The Association is, once again, offering a range of seed potatoes at the bargain price of just £1.10 per kg.

There will be nine varieties on offer.

First Earlies: Pentland Javelin, Casablanca, Duke of York white

Second Earlies: Charlotte, Marfona, Kestrel

Maincrop: Sarpo Mira, Cara, King Edward

They come in 2kg bags.

If you want to buy some, please place your order with Terry Johnson ( plot 18) by October 16.

Payment will be due when you receive your seed potatoes.

Because the Association is offering these bargain-priced seed potatoes we will not accept any orders for seed potatoes through the Kings Seeds Catalogues.

Any other orders from the Kings Seeds Catalogue  must be placed by November 1.  Please pass your order to Pearl or Ron Barton (plots 21b and 22b ) with full payment, either by cheque or in cash.

 

 

Cheers!
