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!).





Divide herbaceous perennials

Pick autumn raspberries


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

Plant spring flowering bulbs

Gardening is still one of the top leisure pursuits and despite the garden centres and on-line suppliers there is still a great benefit from having a local Society that puts its members needs before profit. So, whatever you want to achieve and share with others, spread the word about our local Society and support us in whatever way you can.


2019 Potatoes and Onions sets now on sale.
