Seeds, Tools and Equipment and Cultivation

This last link to John Harrison's excellent allotment web site has got Suttons, Dobies and Thompson & Morgan seeds listed in the allotment shop. It's set up so you can compare varieties and prices without having to flick through 3 separate catalogues. On the subject of the shop, Harrod Horticulture are continuing to give people who subscribe to his newsletter (I do for the association) a 10% discount on the code of JH10.
