You can pick up your garlic bulbs at our Autumn Gathering event on 6th October 2018, 10am to 1pm at Newsome Scout Hall. We ask for £2 per whole bulb to cover our costs. This is ideal if you have a small garden or plot, as you don’t need to buy a whole pack. It’s also great if you fancy planting more than one variety and you just want one bulb of each – or if you want lots, but want to save some pennies (and avoid paying for postage).

Look out for onions, shallots, vegetable seeds and some plants too – all suitable for Autumn growing.

If you can’t make it to our Autumn event, we will offer any remaining stock afterwards. You can Join our email list for updates.

The nights might well be drawing in, but there’s still lots to get growing.
