The Trading Store in Loddon Hall Road, opens 10am to 11am every Sunday apart from a short break from December to January. During the peak time of March, April, May & June we are open for extended hours: 9-30am to 11-30am.
Members are able to buy fertilisers, compost, seeds, bulbs, horticultural equipment and gardening sundries. Buying our stock in bulk, allows us to re-sell to you at favourable prices. Please bring your membership card, when visiting the store.
The store is a vibrant gardening and social hub. Our friendly staff are all volunteers; many have horticultural knowledge and will try to answer any gardening questions that you may have.
Members are welcome to bring along their excess produce, cuttings and plants to sell. Equally if you have plants or bulbs that you would like to donate to community projects please bring them down to the store and we will pass them on to our Guerrilla Gardeners!
We have our very own store garden developed from scrub land 4 years ago with donations of plants from members. We now have a log pile, a bug hotel and a quiet place to sit and think or catch up with fellow gardeners! In the spirit of making gardening accessible to all please feel free to come and garden with us during store opening hours. We’ll provide the tools and gloves!
The Association is affiliated with the Royal Horticultural Society, Vegetable Society, Daffodil Society, Sweet Pea Society, Chrysanthemum Society, and Dahlia Society. Periodicals from these societies are kept at the store, for reference.
