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!).





The Change of venue proved to be a great success, and we look forward to holding this years show at the Roxeth Community  Church again

Exhibitors start prepping your Veg and Flowers not long now.

Helpers on the day always welcome
