Seeds

We have decided to change our seed suppliers to Premier Seeds Direct (on ebay) and have negotiated a price of 75p per packet (plus a very small amount towards postage). All orders must come through Janet & Fred to qualify for this reduced price. Our first order has been executed; if you still needs seeds, please contact Janet about any possible second order this year.

****************************************************************

If anyone is interested, BBC Gardeners World has a good website;  and the Gardeners' World magazine gives free access to a “What to do now” section. This is a week by week breakdown of things to do for fruit, flowers, veg, in the greenhouse and in the garden in general. There is also a “How to …” section.

Looking back

The inaugural get together took place on 19th April 2012 when 30 members gathered at David and Maryke’s home, to chat about what the club might do.
