Options Brief for the Ormonde Road Trading Store

Click here for a 2020 price list.

Calling out for clean 1 or 2 pint milk cartons for dispensing fertilisers.

Opening Times for 2020 – Every Wednesday and Sunday from 10:00 to 12:00 until the end of October, then Sundays in November and the first Sunday in December

In the new year we may be able to continue the “normal” times below:

Franchi Seeds
We now stock Franchi Seeds - well known for their quality and value for money. The Franchi family

have been raising seeds in Italy for seven generations.  The seeds are of popular Italian varieties from

all over Italy - from the Mediterranean in the south to the foothills of the Alps in the north. The northern

climate is not unlike Britain's.    

 

We stock an experimental range of 42 varieties of their vegetable seeds, so why not drop into the store

and try something new?

The Manure Heap
The club manure heap is on plot 9 on the Ormonde Road allotments. There is a new heap at the far end of the track near plot 89. We buy manure by the trailer load and sell it to club members and allotmenteers by the barrow load at £1.50 per std. builder's barrow - all done on trust. Take what you need and pay next time you're in the trading store. If you need to bag it, rather than barrow it, just estimate how many barrow load equivalents you've taken, and pay accordingly.

Canes

We have 4', 6' and 8' canes available.
