Would you like to have a bit of the beautiful St Anns Allotments on your wall?
Now is the chance to buy our gardening calendar, full of lovely pictures of the gardens, taken by our tenants.
Mo Cooper Heritage Officer said “Visitors often want a souvenir of our gardens, so with the help of our gardeners we’ve pulled together a lovely assortment of pictures across the year. John Holmes, from BBC Radio Nottingham was our invited judge to select the pictures.

The calendar includes advice from our gardeners, monthly tasks lists, and room for your own notes. As a gardening calendar it’s not fixed to a particular year – so you can reuse it year on year.”

Mo added “It was suggested that we should do a ‘calendar girls’ one but – with due respect to our older gardeners – we didn’t think Nottingham was ready for it!”

Purchase details are on the homepage or click on the donate button to the left.
Calendars are £6 inc p&p
Postcards are 80p inc p&p
For prices for more than one of any item please contact Mo Cooper at the office (0115 911 0207) or by email

All funds go to the upkeep of the site
