Great Potato Growing Competition

Great start last weekend.
Thanks to all those keen members who have already collected their competition potatoes.
The store team will be there tomorrow 10am – 12 noon, or you can order from Alastair (843667) who will deliver to your home, so don’t miss the opportunity to join i
n @ £1 an entry. Get the whole family involved.

All you need to do is purchase 6 seed potatoes from the VPA, then its down to each grower. Potatoes are easy to grow, either in the ground of course but if you don’t have the room then large containers can work well, they can even be grown in a bin bag providing you give it drainage and some support.
The winner will be the entry that has generated the greatest weight of new spuds from the original 6.

Multiple entries from a household are welcomed, get the whole family competing with each other. Up to you what soil you put them in, how you water them, where you give them the best exposure to the sunshine and how you encourage them to be the winning entry!
Growing instructions are given with each entry and are set out below also.

We will have a grand weigh in at this year’s Summer Show to determine the winner (alternative arrangements will be made if we can’t run the show but we are hopeful this year that the show will go on).

So time to start preparing for the Great Potato Competition!
