Potato Day 2nd March 2013
27 January 2013
TBI's third Potato Day
2nd March 2013 at North Kessock Village Hall
Two sessions, 2pm and 3:30pm, closing at 5pm
Entry £1, free for TBI members and under 16s
Seed potatoes 10p each
At least 60 varieties
Light meals (soups, baked potatoes...) and refreshments available from 1:30pm to 5pm
This year we plan to have 25% more potatoes than 2012 and to split it into two sessions to reduce the initial rush, all potatoes will be available at both sessions. We'll again be sourcing as many potatoes as possible from local growers and the remainder from Scottish seed mechants. Some organically grown varieties will be available.
There will be a seed and plant swap stall so please bring any surplus saved or bought seeds and plants.
