Walton and District Allotment and Garden Society

Welcome

Welcome to the web site for the Walton and District Allotment and Garden Society. The Society is run for the benefit of its members providing expert  horticultural advice together with our own shop supplying all gardening needs. We also organise the letting of Elm Grove allotments, coach outings, and an annual show.

 

Trading Hut

This is our Headquarters where we  stock an excellent range of composts, fertilisers and garden sundries. We are open for members on Saturdays from 9.15am until 11.00am. Click & Collect will then run from 10.30am until 11.30am See Trading Hut page.

Outings

The Society ran three outings in 2019.  The May one was to Scotney Castle and Bateman’s, both National Trust properties. In June the trip was to Audley End, a stunning  house with Victorian gardens.

In July Ascott and Stockwood Discovery Centre were the destinations. Ascott House, a National Trust property administered by the Rothschild family. Stockwood Discovery Centre has extensive gardens and an award-winning display of carriages.

Annual Show and Events

We are unable to hold our Late Summer Show in 2021 because  of Covid restrictions but plans are in place for our next one in August 2022.

The Society’s own site, Elm Grove Allotments, is excellently situated in the centre of Walton.  See our Allotments page.  The other local sites are Rydens Road, Home Farm, Terrace Road and Burhill managed by Walton Charity.
