ApplefieldWe will be hosting weekly volunteer gardening sessions every Thursday at Gartnavel Applefield garden every Thursday until 31 May. The sessions will start at 10.00am and finish at 12.30pm.

Gartnavel Applefield garden contributes to improving the environment around the Gartnavel site for the enjoyment of patients, staff and local people.

Volunteers will be able to help with a wide range of tasks including building and installing raised beds, preparation and filling of raised beds, installing a polytunnel, landscaping the gardens and general weeding.

If you want to come along to any of the sessions please get in touch or you can just turn up on the day. As the work is outdoors, please dress for the weather.

The 7th annual Glasgow Allotment Forum Potato Day will be held on Sunday 18 February 2018 from 11am to 3pm at The Reidvale Neighbourhood Centre, 13 Whitevale Street, Dennistoun, G31 1QW.

All are welcome, so please spread the word to friends, family, schools, work-mates and fellow gardeners. There will be over 50 varieties of seed potato, the majority of which are Scottish grown. You will find old favourites as well as new additions and, again, can buy from as little as one tuber to larger amounts, although the day is more about variety than quantity. There will be onion sets, shallot sets and garlic as well as fertiliser and potato planter bags and Kings Seeds. New this year will be broad beans and peas ‘by the scoop’.
