This appeal arrived from Esther at Macmillan Cancer Charity this week. I hope all plotters will look to see if they can help.

Hi Stuart

I hope you are well and things will soon be picking up for all the allotment holders as the lighter nights are upon us

Our Volunteers and participants will be planning this year’s growing and planting for the allotment and intend to be there this Saturday morning after what has been a very long winter. The Garthdee Fields allotments are an ideal environment and the folks who attend had lovely produce they cultivated last year.

This is to give you their wish list in case any mutual sharing of supplies is possible . This year they want to plant early potatoes, peppers , tomatoes, any other fruit and vegetables from seeds and plants. Also Growmore, wooden stakes and any old garden or hand tools no longer needed would be most helpful. We would be really appreciative of any excess or donated items and I’m sure the gardeners will be around more often from now on.

Thank you so much for all your support,
Warm regards

Esther Milne
