The Chinnor Allotment 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.
Every year CAGA buys seed potatoes in bulk so members can buy them at a discount. However, you need to pre-order so we know how much to buy.
Please download the order form, print it and hand it into the shop before 14 October. If you are unable to print the form, just pop into the shop where we have some pre-printed ones available.
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 £3 a year contribution) Members are eligible for buying products from the “Shop”.
