Alpaca Poo anyone?

Apparently Alpaca Poo packs quite a punch. Mari-Anne on Plot 49 has found a source on Facebook (he owns ‘Highland Alpacas’ in Balmedie) who is selling “Alpaca Poo – organic fertiliser” and is keen to order some to try. It’s currently £4 for a 20KG bag with £6 delivery and he has 76 bags at the moment. Stuart (Plot 8) is willing to coordinate a bulk order to the site if enough plotters are interested in getting some. Please get in touch with Stuart directly if you are interested.

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.

Coffee Grounds Anyone?

We have very kindly been offered spent coffee-grounds from one of Aberdeen’s baristas. A quick internet check reveals that there are differing views on how useful coffee grounds are in a garden.

However the grounds certainly have some uses and are being delivered free of charge to our site. You will find a small pile accumulating at the bottom of our allotment site beside where George dumps the grass cuttings. Please help yourself.

NEW: TAMS Veg Boxes

The Allotment Market Stall team have been in touch to announce their new weekly veg box scheme.



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.
