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!

Dobies Wet Weather Reading

Well, we finally get a day when we don’t open the curtains to find a frosted wonderland – and instead we have a day of solid rain! So, no plot visit for me today, regardless of how much needs doing. Ah well, this too will pass.

If you are at a loose end or doing some thinking about trying out some new things in the year ahead you might find the Dobies Seed site’s advice pages of interest, as well as their new for this season seed varieties.

Remember, if you are tempted to buy seeds as a GFAA member or volunteers you will get a 40% discount on all seed purchases and 10% off other items – but you must use our unique discount code at the time of purchase. If you need the code, there are copies of the Dobies Catalogue with the code included in the Octagon, or just get in touch and I will be pleased to let you have it.

New Dobies Catalogue

Dobies have sent out their new Group Scheme Catalogues and issued our new Discount Code (all our plotters and volunteers can get 40% off seeds and 10% off everything else).

I will pop the new catalogues and code details into the Octagon by the weekend. Be warned – lots of tempting new offerings!

Note: The old code will not now work.

Dobies Update Aug 2020

A wee update on our membership of the Dobies Group Scheme for the season just finishing.

Fifteen orders were placed amounting to a total for seeds of £303. Our GFAA members saved 40% on those orders and the Association’s total discount on all items was £43.93. This discount will be paid to our funds sometime in September.

I am pleased to say we will continue to be members into the coming season on the same basis as before – plotters placing orders get 40% off seeds and 10% off everything else from the Dobies Catalogue. At the same time the Association gets a further 10% for seed orders and 5% of all else paid to our funds. A win/win I think.

Please note: The current Discount code will stop working as of 1 September after which date a new code will be issued.

Thanks to all you took part this year.

New Dobies Catalogue and Code

Autumn’s here and so is the new Dobies’ Seed Catalogue. Copies are now available in the Octagon.

New plotters may not be aware that GFAA is a member of the Dobies’ Group Scheme. Under this scheme, GFAA plotters get a 40% discount on all seeds ordered by post, online or by telephone, or 10% on all other non-seed orders. (Please note this is Dobies with one “b” and not Dobbies – the garden centre with the local branch in Aberdeen.

To get the discount you must quote the unique to GFAA code when you place your order. Forget to use the code as you order and no discount is possible. The current code is available with the catalogues in the Octagon. Past codes will no longer work. If you can’t get by the Octagon, but want to order online, drop me an email and I will send the code by return (gfaawebhelper@gmail.com.)

GFAA gets a payment of 10% of all orders placed for our funds, making this a win-win for plotters and the Association. Orders go directly to your home address in individual deliveries. What’s not to like?
