The price is only 10p per potato and you can buy as few or as many as you want and you can mix and match across varieties.

The broad beans are 70p per 50g and the variety is: Aquadulce Claudia. February is the time for sowing seeds and getting ready for the spring. We have everything you need in stock to enable you to get sowing, e.g. plants pots and seed trays, multipurpose compost, growbags, the full range of John Innes soil products as well as grit, perlite and vermiculite to help you prepare your preferred mix. All our stock is competitively priced and in the main is cheaper than the DIY stores or garden centres. You can just buy the quanitites you actually need rather than having to bulk buy. The hut is open every Sunday morning from 10:00 to 12:00, (Washington Road, the unadopted road that leads past Glenwood school, takes you to the hut), so if you haven't been before or for a while, why not come along and see what's available. Stock is only available to EHS members. Colin Beale
