This year’s supplies of seeds for the Trading Hut have finally arrived. Somewhat later than last year, mainly due to a reorganisation of our suppliers delivery policy. Hope to see you around this and subsequent weekends.
We’ve just had another delivery of London Waste’s compost\soil improver.
Available in the the Grove Road car park, feel free to take what you can, but please consider people who may not be able to get there until the weekend.
If in doubt as to where it is, just follow your nose…

If you have found any damage to your greenhouse over the last few months and are looking at repairs, it might a time to consider acrylic rather than glass. We’ve used a supplier of acrylic panels a couple of times over the years - in contrast to glass, much easier to handle, and less fragile. A supplier in Bounds Green offers flat acrylic plastic panels at reasonable cost – a rough price for a 730×610 panel is £15 for acrylic. The equivalent for glass is approx £11. The company’s website is at www.colmacplastics.co.uk or phone 020 8361 4807
The local glaziers that we have used is www.capitalglass.com phone 020 8445 7047\020 8446 1048
