Thanks to all who have taken part. :) We'll close the voting tomorrow as you should all have harvested by now (apart from Christmas tatties).

That's what I keep telling Worzel ;)

I see Cara came third.  I have to say my Cara crop was wonderful.

Would anyone object if I put together a new poll on "what potatoes are you growing this year?"
I found these polls really handy last year to compare how varieties had done for other people, but also hearing about varieties i'd never heard of before (Ambo!)

Thought it might help people still deciding which ones to go for... and I'm also curious to know if the poll last year has any bearing on what people are doing this year? Or are there any new tips that might come from recent site members?

Might be nice too, knowing if anyone else is growing the same types as you this year...

No objection Spartacat. Thinking about what (it sounds as though) you are trying to find out though, a thread might be better to start with. :)

I was thinking a thread first, but then realised it would take a lot of "tallying" through pages to compare numbers to get an idea how people were actually voting with their wallets when buying seed... rather than an instant view of that with a poll...If the poll part doesn't work... it'll still have the thread too.. nothing to lose.

I was going to put together a list from the potato threads from last year, plus some others mentioned later in the year in the Potato Results 2010 thread, and include an "other" so people can mention any new ones they're trying out.

Right, that makes sense. You are correct, there was a lot of trawling through to collate number for the polls. Just one other thought, how will we know if last years' polls have had any bearing on people's choices for this year, or if they just chose the same varieties every year anyway.

I'm going to lock last years topic now, if you really feel you need to add something then ask a mod to re-open it   ;)
