December2021Welcome to our latest news letter. We are again updating you on all our latest information on product availability and pricing.2022 Pricing We are working on our full price list for the start of the 2022 seasons the new stock arrives into us from Doff, Maxicrop, SBM, Vitax etc. Unfortunately due to ever rising costs we cannot guarantee how long our soon to be issued prices will be in place for and we’ll continue to update you with any changes as the season progresses. Please look out for the new price list arriving via email over the coming weeks. Current stock levels Over the last 2 months we have been able to stockpile over 300 pallets of the Clover, Bloom & Gro, Humax and our Gro-well compost product ranges along with Thomas Elliott fertilisers which should enable us to maintain supply to customers over the first few months of the new year. As the year progresses outside factors may affect product availability and manufacture, pricing and transport along with any new Covid related measures coming into force. These issues are beyond ours and the manufacturers control and may lead to product shortages the coming months. Bamboo Canes We have already sold over 200 bales of our new shipment of bamboo canes!! If you require any stock for the new season we advise that you order and take delivery ASAP to avoid disappointment. We are unable to replenish stock though the year and our next delivery from China will be in the Autumn. 6x Pelleted Fertliser We have a trailer of the 8kg Pelleted Fertiliser arriving in January from Vitax. There are still no plans for Vitax to bring back the 20kg bags due to on-going raw material shortages in the UK.As this is a popular product with all our customers we would advise you to order any tubs you require as early as possible in the new year. We are having to wait longer than normal for deliveries of this product due to its high demand, it’s advisable to plan ahead where possible.
Seed Potatoes& Onion Set Orders Please remember final order date for seed potatoes and onion sets etc. is December 31st. Although we will be closed at this time you can leave us a message on the answerphone, email or post your orders to us and we will deal with them on our return. Any orders placed now will be for a February delivery. Mr Fothergill’s packet Seeds, Moles loose peas & beans We currently have good stock levels of Fothergill and Johnsons packet seeds, however there are already supply issues on several popular varieties of tomato(Alicante, Ailsa Craig, Suncherry Smile)which could extend to other products as demand through the season increases .Supply of loose peas and beans from Moles Seeds is very intermittent at the moment. Continuous supply across all varieties cannot be guaranteed and again planning ahead while stock is available would be advisable. Christmas & New Year Shutdown We are closing for our Christmas and New Year break on Wednesday 22ndDecember and will re-open on Tuesday 4thJanuary 2022 at 8:00am. During this time our answerphone and emails will be in operation for any messages, we will reply on our return.
