Our second Potato Day will be held in Loughborough Town Centre on Saturday 30th January 2016! Potato Day is a great way for local gardeners to get access to low cost seed potatoes, and the range of varieties offered means that you can try several different types of spuds without having to buy large bags. We’ve had orders ranging from a single tuber up to enough for a field!
We have partnered with our friends at Transition Chesterfield to make a large bulk purchase in order to keep the costs low. As a result we were able to offer the same great price as last year for orders made before 6th December 2015. We also got some excellent prices on beans, peas, onions, shallots, garlic and some potato growing sundries such as fertilizer and potato growing sacks. These pre-orders will be available to pick up from our market stall on 30th January 2016 in Loughborough town centre.
However, if you missed out on making an order, you can still buy potato tubers from our market stall on 30th January 2016 at 14p per tuber. Just come along and choose from the varieties on offer on the day.
Here’s some more photos from people who’ve grown their own crops from seed bought via Potato Day back in January 2015:
