Plug plants on offer
Kings Seeds have a great offer on veg plug plants for members without a greenhouse (or window-ledge space) to bring on seedlings at this time of year. Just about anything (from beans to broccoli) is available at around £5.75 for a dozen plants. Visit the seeds page for a link.
Vacant plots to rent
Several long-standing Duxford allotment tenants retired and hung up their wellingtons in the autumn, meaning that some excellent whole and half plots are available for the 2018 season. If you live in, or near, Duxford please contact the Parish Clerk for details.
Following the autumn break-ins, a reminder that it's inadvisable to leave valuable items in allotment sheds and, wherever possible, to leave doors unlocked. It's much less expensive to replace the odd watering can than to mend a crow-barred door/broken hinges.
It is everyone's responsibilty to close the access gates, which should be kept shut at all times.
Please take the trouble to close them every time you leave. Although this may be inconvenent for drivers, it is also time-consuming and inconvenient for visiting thieves.
Please follow us, like us, post up your allotment news, tips, photos and share. Facebook will get the news around and help promote the allotments too.
Renting a Duxford allotment
Growing your own is a great way to get fitter - and make new friends, allotments being quite sociable places.
If you live, or work, within three miles of the Duxford parish boundary you are eligible to rent an allotment. There are sometimes plots immediately available and the waiting list is always short.
Contact the Parish Clerk for more information.
Please note that this meeting (scheduled for 20 March) has been postponed to enable more members to attend. The meeting will now take place in April - date to be advised shortly.
Members look out for email and date preference poll.
