Newton Park Horticultural Society – Spring 2012 Newslettter now out

Newton Park Horticultural Society have just published their Spring 2012 newsletter, which should be arriving in member’s letterboxes shortly. You can read an online version here.

The Society’s website is growing nicely, and starting to blossom, with the fruits of it’s labours starting to appear (puns all intended) – one of the things I noticed on there is that you don’t need to have an allotment plot to be a member, and even if you do have a plot, it needn’t be at the Newton Park allotments either.

Founded 1939 it is situated on the Newton Park West site alongside the park in Rayners Lane. Pedestrian entrance is by 321 Alexandra Ave just downhill of the Drake Road junction. Loading access for bulky items/large orders is via the access road by 1 Drake Road.

Open two hours every Sunday morning from 10.30 am to 12.30pm it stocks a wide selection of all the consumables any gardener usually requires sold at very competitive prices. Whether you want seeds, pots, composts, foods or poisons, netting, ground cover, hose adaptors or a whole host of many other items, it is always worth checking us out first.

In season we also stock bulbs and tubers such as daffodils, tulips, crocii, hyacinths, gladiolas, potatoes, onions (main and Autumn/japanese) etc..

Remember the golden rule: If you can not see what you want, do ask.

We also have a “bargain counter” where currently dibbers, hand trowels & forks, sprayers, and many other items are sold at an unbelievably cheap price. Always check this out first when you call.

On our charity stall you will find plants surplus to members requirements, plus various other freely donated items. Our homemade preserves are very popular (fruit according to season) being additive free.

Gardening advice of course is always freely available (and sometimes too freely available!).
