Trading Hut

The Trading Hut has become the focal point for many activities on site over recent years. There are always a bunch of plot holders and members there on a Sunday morning buying fertilisers etc., or simply socialising. The range of products on sale is improving all the time and good horticultural advice is in abundance.

The Trading Hut is very often the first point of contact for new members and Elaine, our Trading Secretary, ensures the prices are always competitive. If you are interested in helping out in the Trading Hut - either behind the counter or working behind the scene weighing and bagging up products, we are always looking for extra volunteers ... so please pop in and have a word with Elaine - you will be made very welcome!

For a detailed description of some commonly used fertilisers and how to use them see the WhatsItFor pages.

Finally, if there are any members who are able to spare 1½ hours on a Saturday or Sunday morning to help in the Trading Hut, Elaine our Trading Hut Manager would love to hear from you. We have a rota, so you would only have to help one week in every five or six. Any assistance will be much appreciated.
