Shop

The Whitemoor Allotments shop is open Saturday mornings from 10:00 am to 12:30 all year round, and the main gates are left open during this time.

During the summer months the shop is a hive of activity and forms the central hub of the allotment site. Tenants and non-tenants congregate to have a natter and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee which is usually provided free of charge!

The main shopkeepers form part of a group of volunteers who give up their time freely so that the site runs efficiently.  Lorraine Smedley is currently head shopkeeper.

Association members can buy fertilisers, seeds, compost bags, canes and a variety of other items.  Eggs from the Chicken cooperative are on sale, as and when they are available.

Wood chippings (free) are available to members in both car parks at any time.  Leaf mould, and used guinea pig bedding (free)  is available from the compound by the car park, which is open during shop hours. Please ask at the shop for the key to the compound.

Donations of plant pots and wood are sometimes available to share, but please ask in the shop before removing items.

Friends from other allotment associations and local gardeners can come and buy from the shop as well.

Seed potatoes are sold in the spring – get your orders in – as well as onions and shallots.

During October and November the shop will usually stock onion sets and garlic for overwintering.

Potato order sheets and information sheets will be available in the shop in season.

Orders will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
Check the board in the shop to see which varieties are still available.
