The National Trust community allotment on Back Lane will be open on Tuesday 11 October from 11am-2pm.
Hagg Lane Allotment Society is holding an open morning on Sunday 31 January to celebrate the new growing season and the arrival of this year’s seed potatoes.
Coffee and cake will be available between 9.30am and 12.30pm, and more than 20 different varieties of potatoes will be available from £1 a bag.
Potatoes can be grown in containers on a sunny patio and new potatoes can be ready to harvest from 10 weeks after planting, weather conditions permitting.
The Allotment Society Hut, on Back Lane, also stocks vegetable and flower seeds, compost and other gardening products, and is now open on both Saturday and Sunday mornings, from 9.30am.
Crosspool residents are invited to visit the new allotment society hut, on Back Lane, on the morning of Sunday 13 December.
Coffee and tea will be available between 9.30am and 12.30pm, along with festive home-baking!
A warm welcome is extended to anyone who fancies a cuppa and a chat, and to look around this new community facility.
The National Trust would like help looking after their new community allotment plot at Hagg Lane allotments in Crosspool.
They hold a regular workday 1:30pm-3pm each Tuesday and ad-hoc events take place on other days.
Members of the public are more than welcome to come along and join in. They particularly need someone who lives locally to nip in to water the plants in the polytunnel.
The allotment is at the very top of the site and is accessed via Stephen Hill.
