Pest Control

One very good product for controlling various pests and diseases, and which is suitable for organic gowers is SB Plant Invigorator.

Controls a wide range of important pest species including Whitefly, Aphid, Spider Mite, Mealybug, Scale and Psyllid. Due to the physical mode of action these pests will not become resistant to SBPI. For use on all edible and ornamental crops

Unlike many other pesticides SBPI does not harm birds & bees

Used by professional and amateur growers and gardeners worldwide. It also controls powdery mildew on courgettes and peas and some fungal infections on brassicas

SBPI has a “physical mode of action”.

There is no harvest interval after applying SBPI.

  • Physical mode of pest and mildew control
  • Pests will not become resistant
  • No harvest interval
  • Suitable for use throughout the year
  • Plant wash for a cleaner, shiny appearance
  • Excellent shelf life

Allotment shop 2019 season

The allotment shop at Pippenhall is now open every Sunday morning from 9.30am until midday.

Site Security

Please could all tenants make sure the gate is always shut fully after entering or exiting the site and not to let anyone on site who does not have a key for the gate. There have been a number of instances of theft and sheds being broken into in recent weeks and we would ask tenants to report any suspicious activity to both the police and Greenwich council parks and open spaces department.

Multipurpose Compost

Please note that Violet Farm multipurpose compost is no longer available due to the change in peat regulations. We now stock the Rosedale premium professional brand multipurpose compost at £5.25 for a 60 litre bag
