Allotment Shop news


The shop will be open on Saturday mornings, 10.00 – 12.00 until the end of October.

We hope to order some Seaweed Meal (NB not Calcified Seaweed) for next season. This is likely to be priced at around £1.70 per kg.  We want to order sufficient to cater for all members.  If you are likely to want to purchase a full 20 kg of Seaweed Meal from us please let us know before the end of September, via walga.allotments@gmail.com  so that we order sufficient. It is unlikely that we will be able to put in a second order for this product.


Seaweed is a fantastic soil conditioner and helps to improve plant health. Used as a soil improver, it builds up the humus structure of the soil, stimulates microbial activity, and provides a range of micro nutrients as well as vitamins and alginates. A single application provides a slow-acting, long lasting plant food which is broken down over a period of months by the soil bacteria providing a health benefit to all crops grown. Recommend application is at 200g/m².
