Distribution Hut - Autumn 2021 As nights are drawing in and days becoming colder thoughts are turning to planning for next Spring. Kings Seed catalogues are now available at the Hut and, as in previous years, Orders through EHS will receive a discount of up to 40% on Hut stock. Orders for seeds   only should be returned to the Hut together with payment by the 28   November, which is the last date the Hut is open until early January 2022. This will enable the orders to be processed and returned prior to Christmas (to beat the rush). Any other items required must be ordered direct from Kings Seeds. Potatoes, onions, shallots and garlic have now been ordered for delivery to the Hut during mid January. Due to high demand last year larger quantities will be available. Potatoes - First Earlies - Casablanca (boiling and steaming) Second Earlies - Charlotte (boiling and salad) Kestrel (roasting and chips) Main Crop - Desiree (general purpose) Onions (Spring) - Stuttgart Giant (mild flavour and keeps well) Red Baron - early main crop (keeps well) Turbo Shallots - Bistro (sweet, good for pickling and salads) Yellow Moon (stores well, culinary uses) Garlic - Vigour (white - plant March for July harvest) Prices will be held at 10p per seed potato. Onions/shallots/garlic prices will be notified nearer the time. At present the Hut is being re-stocked with more compost, mypex, seed trays, pots, netting, herbicides and pesticides. Bamboo canes, chicken manure pellets and growbags are continuing to be a problem with supply and will be processed in the New Year. The Hut Committee are considering opening for a six week period midweek (Wednesdays 10am - 12 noon) during March and April, the busy period. Details will be announced in the January Newsletter.
