Seed potatoes are now in the Store and ready for collection.
For those members who have not pre-ordered we still have some varieties available.
All are priced the same; for example, 3kg for £3.15 or 1/2kg for 70p.
We are also trialling 2 varieties: 'Abbot', a first early, and 'Carolus', an early maincrop potato. They are available in 1/2kg packets selling at 70p.
ONIONS AND SHALLOTS
These will be in the store in early March and we will be stocking the same as last year, that is Sturon, Stuttgart and Rumba.
They will be bagged in 250gm and 500gm lots. For 250gm you get between 80 and 100 sets (depending on the variety) and obviously twice that amount for 500gm. We anticipate the price will be about the same as last year, that is – 250gm cost 85p and 500gm will cost £1.10.
The red onions, Red Kamal, will be in the store in about mid-March. (Planted too early and they tend to bolt).
We will also have the Shallots Golden Gourmet and Red Sun.
For those members who pre-ordered seeds, they are ready for collection from the store. There has been a 50% discount for D T Brown seeds and 40% for Suttons. Well worth putting in an order, I think.
