The Trading Store
Because of the Covid19 situation the Trading Store has closed until further notice. Please see our Covid19 statement on the homepage
Please find the current price list for the Store here. We cannot guarantee that everything listed is in stock but we will do our best to keep the list up to date.
We are aware that our members will be looking to buy some of the products in the Store and are piloting a ‘click and collect’ scheme where you send us a list of what you would like to purchase and we make a mutually agreed arrangement to meet you at the Store or consider any other method of delivery that obeys the pertinent lock down rules. We will need to be firm about this as to break the rules may lead to repercussions with the Town Council. Payment will be made by bank transfer prior to collection. Further details available.
The Trading Store provides a diverse range of gardening items from seeds, bulbs and fertilisers, pots, tools and that invaluable commodity advice! With a discount to members of the WHA.
As well as being our shop, it's also our club room. Here you can find members meeting for a natter over coffee and biscuits and sometimes, if you're lucky bacon sandwiches! There's a noticeboard full of information and a library of gardening books and ring binders packed with more information.
The WHA Members' Trading Store is run by a small band of enthusiastic members who will be very happy to see you and answer your questions about the Association.
Calling out for clean 1 or 2 pint milk cartons for dispensing fertilisers.
WHA Calendar - Do have a look at the WHA 2020 Calendar with photos taken by WHA members locally, in their gardens, allotments or at an outing. £7 a calendar. Now selling at a reduced price of £2.
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.
We have had another delivery of 8 foot canes ready for your sweet pea and runner bean structures.
