September will soon be upon us. So make a note in your diary now for our Autumn Show. This will take place once again at Roxeth Community Church.

We really do make it very easy for everyone to have a go and enter at least one class. For those of you who aren’t growers, there are classes for cookery, preserves, cake-making, handicrafts, photography and a harvest festival class. We literally have classes for everyone. It is not all about winning prizes (although there are plenty for every level of ability), but this is your chance to share your skills with us and compare notes with others. There is little achievement if there is only one entry in a class. The schedules are available at the shed or from our web site, so see what you can enter. If you have never entered before - have a go and join in.

Remember, it is entries and visitors that will determine just how spectacular it will be.

2017 Show Schedule



Founded 1939 it is situated on the Newton Park West site alongside the park in Rayners Lane. Pedestrian entrance is by 321 Alexandra Ave just downhill of the Drake Road junction. Loading access for bulky items/large orders is via the access road by 1 Drake Road.

Open two hours every Sunday morning from 10.30 am to 12.30pm it stocks a wide selection of all the consumables any gardener usually requires sold at very competitive prices. Whether you want seeds, pots, composts, foods or poisons, netting, ground cover, hose adaptors or a whole host of many other items, it is always worth checking us out first.

In season we also stock bulbs and tubers such as daffodils, tulips, crocii, hyacinths, gladiolas, potatoes, onions (main and Autumn/japanese) etc..

Gardening advice of course is always freely available (and sometimes too freely available!).
