WELCOME TO NEWTON PARK H.S.

Founded 1939 it is situated on the Newton Park West site alongside the park in Rayners Lane. Pedestrian entrance is by 321 Alexandra Ave just downhill of the Drake Road junction. Loading access for bulky items/large orders is via the access road by 1 Drake Road.


Open two hours every Sunday morning from 10.30 am to 12.30pm it stocks a wide selection of all the consumables any gardener usually requires sold at very competitive prices. Whether you want seeds, pots, composts, foods or poisons, netting, ground cover, hose adaptors or a whole host of many other items, it is always worth checking us out first.


In season we also stock bulbs and tubers such as daffodils, tulips, crocii, hyacinths, gladiolas, potatoes, onions (main and Autumn/japanese) etc..


Gardening advice of course is always freely available (and sometimes too freely available!).





Collect and sow seed from perennials and hardy annuals

Dig up remaining potatoes before slug damage spoils them

Net ponds before leaf fall gets underway

Keep up with watering of new plants, using rain or grey water if possible

Start to reduce the frequency of houseplant watering

Clean out cold frames and greenhouses so that they are ready for use in the autumn

Cover leafy vegetable crops with bird-proof netting

Plant spring flowering bulbs
