Unless you live miles from anywhere, you should try a local garden centre as buying on line is much more costly and then there is the carriage to pay!
The problem with buying online is the weight of the potatoes!
Emmaandsam - There are loads of local Potato Days around the country every year where you can choose from many varieties - here's an example of a website promoting them:
Spuds start at 10p a tuber at the one I go to.
I had blight for the first time this year - I was growing the varieties I ususally do, Charlotte, Red Duke of York, and a 3rd one which escapes me at the moment and they all got it. I put it down to the weather and have fingers crossed for next year.
In this weeks Garden News, Nigel Coburn was posed the question what potatoes he will grow next season, the reply was Charlotte and Epicure!
My wife is a Scot so when we were up there we were fed "Ayrshire" potatoes, "the best in the world" according to my mother in law!
"Ayrshire" potatoes are actually Epicure, I tried them and they tasted nothing like the Scottish ones, so never again!
I wonder if Nigel will give us a tweet on here?
Local garden centre has "early" seed potatoes on display !
Must say this is the earliest I have ever seen them for sale!
