Potato Day stampede

baskets of seed potatoesIf you came along to this year’s Potato Day and Seed Swap, you might have noticed that it got quite busy to say the least. We had 200 participants and we distributed goodness-knows-how-many seed potatoes.

Thank you very much to everyone who came along. Thanks especially to everyone who did some seed swapping.

Although it’s nice to be popular, we realise that some of you didn’t get your first choice of seed potatoes this time, as some of the varieties sold out very quickly. There were sad faces all round when the Pink Fir Apples ran out. Sorry.


To make sure that Growing Newsome members get first pick of the crop, we will offer advance ordering next year, so that you can reserve some potatoes if you wish.

It’s not always possible for us to get all the varieties that we hope to (due to supply issues), but we’ll try our best to get your favourites to order. If you’re on our email or postal mailing list, we’ll send you some more details nearer the time.
