The John Innes Society Autumn Plant and Produce Sale is at The Coach House, Melrose Road and other local venues (details to be advised) on Saturday 3 October from 10.30am to 12.30pm. We shall be selling bulbs, autumn/winter bedding plants, perennials and shrubs, garden produce and jams and chutneys. Compost (80L bags at 3 bags for £10 or £4 per bag) will also be available but must be collected from the Coach House and pre-ordered (please email to place your order).


We are not able to offer coffee and cakes at the Coach House but we will have a cake stall selling home-made bakes.

We appreciate contributions, so please think of the sale when you are dividing plants and picking your fruit and vegetables or making jams and chutneys. Clearly labelled donations can be left at 21 Poplar Road in the week before the sale or taken to The Coach House on Friday 8 October between 2.00 - 3.0pm. 


If you can donate plants/produce or cakes for the cake stall or if you can help on the day, please contact Ann Redfearn ( or 020 8286 9983).

We look forward to seeing you.
