Dobies new 2022 Catalogue

Plotters, volunteers and friends can find copies of the new Dobies Catalogue along with an introductory letter and our special GFAA discount code in the Octagon.

The rules are still the same – use the discount code when you order by phone, post or online and you will get a 40% discount on seeds and 10% on everything else. In addition, GFAA receive a 10% bonus for our funds on all orders placed with our code. A Win-Win for sure!

Super Success

It turns out that even Superman needs to concentrate while Precision Keep Chucking!

The GFAA Committee want to say a big thank you to all plotters, volunteers and friends of GFAA who helped make our first Open Day within the Aberdeen Garden Festival such a success. Thanks for giving that most precious of resources – your time and efforts.

It’s not to late to order! See the Sales Page of the Website.

A special mention goes to Peter (Plot 29) for designing and staffing the inspiring NEEP Chucking activity, Irene for taking the free tearoom to a whole new level and to Ron for the success of the Planter Sales Stall. We bagged quite a nice wee bonus for our GFAA funds and item buyers were delighted with their purchases.

Hopefully, next year’s Festival Open Day will be even bigger and better.

Sketchers come calling

It was a great pleasure to have the local Sketchers’ group on site yesterday. Such wonderful talents!

Missing Pendant

Jim (Plot 65B) has been in touch with this distressing message:


My wife Lorraine and myself were at our allotment 65B on Sunday the 25th of July and she realised later that her her pendant was missing – it’s a gold shaped L with sentimental value. It is really small and we looked in our allotment and the top car park but could not see it.

If any one happens to find it and hands it in can you please let us know.


Please be on the lookout around the site.

Community Sunday Returns

It was a great pleasure to see so many plotters, volunteers and friends turn out for our first Community Sunday in such a long time. Thanks go to all who found the time to come along and help out on the day. We counted well north of twenty helpers.

Of course, it was not all coffee and cake and much work was completed around the site before the serious business of catching up with old and new friends began. I don’t think our site has ever looked better.

Thanks too go to Ron for his efforts selling our new range of planters, built by our volunteers. Sales and orders on the day netted over £50 for Association funds. A great effort all round. Further details of the planters available can be found in our new Online Catalogue. We are still accepting orders and some items are still in stock.

All in all we had a wonderful day and warm thanks go to everyone who helped get the new season of Community Sundays off to such a great start.

South Bank Splendour

We got a wee reminder this week of just how splendid the South Bank looks at its best whatever the season.

West end – Foxgloves, Waldsteinia Ternata, Primula and Vinca Major

From its early beginnings remembering especially the work put in by Michael (Plot 88) to get it established, it was super to see our current Volunteers working so hard to get it into shape for the summer ahead.

Apologies to all those who helped and who’s photos I missed.
