Blooming Good Plant Sale

Henley Allotments Association (HAA) and the Ways & Means Trust (Green Shoots Garden Centre) joined forces to put on a great Plant Sale on Saturday in Market Square,  From bedding plants, to vegetable seedlings, freshly picked rhubarb to herbs, there was an amazing array on sale for the public to buy.  Greenshoots is a charity based at Rotherfield Peppard and offers adults with recurring mental ill health or with a learning disability the opportunity to learn about horticulture.

Orchard Dene Nurseries from Lower Assendon donated some plants after allotment holder and HAA Treasurer, David Chilvers approached them.  David said, “They made a very kind donation of around 40 plants. The Lupins in particular were very popular and went like hot cakes!”

Ways & Means Trust said their cute willow dog flower planters were their most popular item in the sale for them.

Chair of the Henley Allotments Association, Dave McEwan said, “We’ve had a good morning selling with sweetcorn and runner bean plants being the most popular.  We’ve been talking to people about having an allotment too.  We don’t have any space at the moment at Watermans on Reading Road but we do have a few spare plots on Greencroft, next to Henley Cricket Club in Remenham.
