Kings Seed Potatoes

The Kings Seed Potatoes will be available to collect from the Distribution Hut from Sunday 17th February.

Kings have apologised for the delayed delivery, which was the result of very poor weather conditions in Scotland which prevented the harvesting of the seed potatoes.

They have also added the advice that plotholders should avoid planting tubers, chitted or not, into cold wet soil and that unchitted tubers will catch up with the chitted stock very quickly once the soil temperature warms up. Plotholders wanting a very early crop should consider covering the soil for a couple of weeks before they plant the tubers, and that in this case, clear polythene seems to be the best material.

Community Service

As previously reported, David Swaysland, John Gasston and Paul West returned to the scene of their crime and duly completed their community service by erecting the replacement shed.

Our roving reporter Georgie West was also once again on hand to record their diligence:

Shed Asset Stripping

Following recent reports in the media of gangs asset stripping heritage buildings, SALGS' roving reporter Georgie West patrolled the allotment site earlier this week armed only with a phone camera.

The gang ruthlessly managed to dismantle the old shed in a mere 3 hours.

lead anyone?

Fortunately, the three caught on camera have been named and shamed as David Swaysland, John Gasston and Paul West.

Stay tuned for further developments.
