First Early, Second Early and Maincrop Seed Potatoes NOW IN STOCK at ‘The Hut’

Welcome to 2024. What can be better than growing your own vegetables knowing just how much or little insecticide has been applied, what feed has helped them to grow and just how good they taste when picked fresh from your plot or garden. A year when you can enjoy some healthy exercise in very pleasant surroundings. 

Our monthly column aims to help you enjoy your gardening while keeping costs down to a minimum. The vast majority of our members do not have an allotment but still enjoy the benefits of our bulk-buy prices and seed scheme. “THE HUT” will endeavour to supply you with quality products at the lowest prices.

All horticultural items are available to our members from a range of quality producers provided to meet basic gardening needs. Membership is just £5 per annum. You can join by visiting ‘THE HUT’ or by downloading an application form from our website: www.capelallotments.co.uk. Existing members and plot holders should have received details of 2024 fees by now. Any queries should be directed to: memberships@capelallotments.co.uk

Vehicles On Site 

Plot holders please remember that at times during the winter months it is advisable not to take your vehicle on to the allotment site. Considerable damage can be caused to the tractor paths and grassed areas after long bouts of rain. The Committee reserve the right to close the site to all vehicles in extreme conditions.

‘THE HUT’ 

The Hut will open for the new season on Saturday, 3 February between 10am-12 noon. We will also open on one day in January – Saturday, 13 between 10am-12 noon – to enable you to top up supplies of essentials. Please contact Dennis for your winter requirements while we are closed. 

Feed The Birds 

In addition to garden sundries we also supply a choice of feeds to encourage wild birds into your garden. We have bags of Wild Bird Seed, Black Sunflower Seeds, Sunflower Hearts, Dried Meal Worms and bags of Peanuts and Niger Seeds. Larger bulk bags are also available.

Salt

We have attractively priced supplies of salt (25 kg or 5kg)  suitable to de-ice slippery paths and drives. 

And finally….. the Committee of the Allotments Association wish all of our members and readers a happy and healthy New Year.
