The Association operates trading sheds for the sale of various garden and allotment products including composts, fertilizers, pesticides, canes, netting and sundry supplies all at competitive prices. Seed potatoes, Onion sets, Vegetable seeds and flower bulbs are stocked in the appropriate season.
The trading sheds are operated by volunteer members (subject to availability) and are located as follows:Maidenhead Road Allotment site
Products are available only by personal visit of members to the trading sheds. Please show a current membership card (the 2014/2015 card was orange, the 2015/2016 card was blue and the 2016/2017 card is pink).
23/06/2017 The modifications to the Fairground trading shed shop at Gardeners Hall are now complete. Small items such as seeds and fertilisers are displayed in the new shop entrance. Bulk items such as pallets of compost and netting rolls are in the original shop area. As there is now more room for display we are open to suggestions for new stock. As an example we have a pallet of 40L compost bags in addition to the larger sizes.
30/01/2017 The seeds for the 2017 season are now in the trading sheds. A list of the varieties stocked with the Dobies catalogue reference can be found here. Start planning now. Note that we have stocks of Aquadulce Broad Beans for autumn sowing, we sold out last year so buy now to ensure supply. Seeds will be about half to two-thirds catalogue price.
We are expecting the seed potatoes and onion sets to be available for collection from Sunday 19th February.
18/10/2016 Printed copies of the seed potato order form for February 2017 delivery are now available in the sheds. You can also download and print one from here. We have had to increase the price slightly compared with previous years, but they are very good value. Three varieties are described by the supplier as Organic, Accent, Nicola and Sarpo Mira. Sarpo Mira is also blight resistant.
07/10/2016 Attractive packets of autumn planting bulbs including Crocus, Hyacinth, Narcissus, Tulip, Anemone, iris, Allium and Snowdrop are selling fast. The remainder of this year's seeds are now on offer at half the marked price. Autumn planting garlic (Early Purple Wight and Topinky)and onion sets (Shakespeare) have now arrived. Unfortunately the Lyubasha garlic crop failed so (perhaps it's just as well) we didn't get any.
Don't forget to get your Aquadulce Broad Bean seeds for November sowing.
