As well as our normal composts and fertilizers we are now selling STRULCH, a straw based mulch which will rot down and add organic matter to the soil, and has similar nutritional benefits to farmyard manure. A first delivery of 48, 13Kg bags has almost sold out. If you are likely to purchase STRULCH later this Spring/Summer please let the huts know,

Society History.


A lady came to one of the trading huts late in 2022 with a written history of the Society which we think was compiled by her deceased Father

unfortunately we don’t know their names but the history which goes back to 1915 is very interesting. Download the WORD document here.
