Our prices are again very reasonable and the same as last year: all are priced the same: for example, 3kg for £3.20 or 1/2kg for 65p. You can order any quantity you wish.
We can only stock a limited amount of each variety: so that you are not disappointed, get your orders in as soon as possible! This will also help us – if we sell out of a particular variety, we may be able to re-order.
We also intend to ‘trial’ 1 new variety: 'Maxine', an early maincrop, very suited for exhibition, with round tubers, red skins and waxy white flesh. A heavy cropper.
These will be available in ½ kg packets, selling at 65p.
