With autumn crops collected, it is time to look forward to East Anglia Potato Day 2017. Please put February 11th into your diary, and as usual the doors will open to you at 9.30am.
The place remains Stonham Barns, Stonham Aspal, Suffolk. IP14 4AT and we are pleased to report that it has become a more comfortable place for our event.
86 potato varieties have been ordered, and on recent experience only one or two will fail to get to us. Ordering is a blunt tool but we try to respond to the way you have bought in past years. We hope to have 25 varieties produced organically. Potatoes are still sold by the tuber. Most will cost 17p each, apart from a few, like Ratte, which have cost us nearly twice as much to source. All seed is certified and comes from Scotland.
Potato Day remains a gardener-oriented event. It has broadened from purely potatoes to offer you other seeds, garden tools, and other stalls of interest. Last year we introduced fine mesh to exclude insects like carrot fly and root trainers to give seedlings a good chance before planting out. Both of these products have been rather pricey elsewhere. 2017 will be the third year you can buy onion sets at a good price too.
If you can suggest other things we might supply, get in contact with us.
