Sunday 28 May – Plants and Compost
The growing season is well underway and our May open day offers a range of bargain plants for sale, as well as lots of other activities. Last chance to get our seedlings and plug plants for this spring/summer. And if you’d like to come to the site by bike you can join our Bicycle Train convoy leaving from Lloyd Park in Walthamstow!
