Potato Day 2019 – order your seed potatoes in advance

baskets of seed potatoesOur annual Huddersfield Potato Day is always popular. If you want to make sure you get the best pick of the potatoes, you can order from us in advance.

The idea of our annual Potato Day is that you can choose from around 30 different varieties of seed potato. This means you can just get what you need, instead of having to buy a whole bag of the same variety. It’s ideal for anyone with a small garden or containers, or if you just want to try something new.

We do our best to get your favourites, based on what was popular at our last Potato Day, and what our participants have asked us to buy.

Our 2019 varieties are:

1st Earlies: Belle de Fontenay (organic), Casablanca (organic), Colleen (organic), Maris Bard (organic), Pentland Javelin, Red Duke of York, Rocket, Sharpe’s Express.

2nd Earlies: British Queen, Charlotte (organic), Divaa, Jazzy, Kestrel, Maris Peer (organic), Sarpo Una.

Mains: Apache, Belmonda (organic), Cara (organic), Carolous (organic), Desiree (organic), Highland Burgundy Red (organic), Mary’s Rose (organic), Orla (organic), Pink Gypsy (organic), Pink Fir Apple, Red Emmalie, Salad Blue (organic), Sarpo Kifli, Sarpo Mira (organic), Vales Sovereign.

You can find descriptions of many of these varieties in last year’s potato guide:
2018 potato guide (PDF)

Our full 2019 guide will be available nearer the time.

Sorry, advance orders are closed now – but you can collect your seed potatoes at our event on 2nd March.
