The Chinnor Allotment Distribution centre, colloquially known as the “Shop” is open for purchases every Sunday between 10AM and 12 noon, (except for the Christmas/New Year week.)
The Shop has a large selection of items for sale which will prove useful to any keen allotment holder; more interestingly they are at prices that are generally competitive with the local Garden Centres.
On sale includes a comprehensive selection of vegetable seeds; all the standard varieties of legumes ( peas & beans), brassicas (cabbage, broccoli & sprouts), root crops ( beetroot, carrots & leeks), lettuce, salad crops and herbs, cucurbits (cucumbers, courgettes, squash & pumpkins) as well as tomatoes, peppers & chillies, while not forgetting sweet corn, spinach and fennel.
If we don’t stock it, no worries, get a group together and we will get them in for you.
An annual pre-paid, potato seed order covers the principal varieties of Earlies, Second Earlies and Maincrop and allows plot holders and Associate members to access seed potatoes at bulk prices.
A complete selection of both organic and inorganic fertilisers are stocked: firm favourites like Fish, Blood & Bone and Potash but also more seasonal items like Autumn Weed & Feed and potato fertiliser; because we buy it in bulk but sell it in handy 3 kg. bags, you get the best of our economies of scale buying. Chicken pellets and tomato feed complement our extensive availability.
The Shop also sells a selection of general packaged items: some examples are slug pellets, weed killers & seaweed meal.
Compost and tomato grow bags as well as canes for runner beans, fleece, weed suppressant fabric and cabbage & bird netting add an extra dimension.
Either Full (plot holders)or Associate ( a £2 a year contribution) Members are eligible for buying products from the “Shop”.
