just an extra, harry - the seed and potatoe day in Mold is opposite the police station by the main car park. Turn right at the lights if you're coming 'up' the main street and the car park's on the left. don't leave it too late as they sell out fairly quick.
Hope to see you there...

I got mine yesterday from Dobbies in Clifton on the Blackpool Road (A583) about halfway between Preston and Blackpool. They only have about 8 varieties but they were 1.99 a bag for any variety and as many as you can fit in the bag - I got 17 wilja tubers in one bag and 14 king edwards in another - so works out about 12-14p a tuber (although my Mother in Law works there so I got a discount on top!). You could mix and match as well if you only wanted  two or three of each variety.

Here's this years list of potato days. My local one is Mold but last year I went to Gordale,Wirral, well worth a visit. You can buy the spuds pre packed or loose and even pick and mix a bagfull.

The Wyevale Garden Centre at Wroughton, near Swindon (i.e. Blooms) has now got loose seed potatoes in. Just a few varieties - Pentland Javelin, King Edward, Charlotte, Rocket, fill a paper bag for 1.99. If you pick out smaller spuds and really cram them in, you might manage to get 10 in a bag :)

They also have an enormous range of seed potatoes either in 2.5kg bags (3.99) or a bag of 10 (2.49).

Well, yes, but if you don't have space to plant 2.5 or 3kg, it's cheaper than a bag of 10 and at least it gives you the option to buy a small amount so you can try a few varieties if you don't have much space. The only other garden centre I've found in the area selling loose seed spuds is charging 40p per spud. Homebase sells a bag of 5 but they charge 1.49 for that, so 30p per spud.

For those in the NE
Wylam Nurseries
Stephenson Terrace
Wylam
Northumberland
NE41 8DZ

48 varieties pick and mix (75p per 500g )
Plus bagged heriatage varieties (most 1.99 500g)
Most are JBA seed spuds.
They even provide a printed handout of the varieties, brief description and disease resistance)
Cursing as always pass on way to pub on Sunday and last week when seed spud sign was out we were late and they had shut so used free p&p offer from T&M when should have waited.
Still picked up some Shetland Black as OH insisted given their sucess last year.
If you are travelling worth combining with  trip to the Boathouse other side of the bridge-14 hand-pulled Real Ales and recently won Sunday food pub of the year from the local paper.
Right by Wylam station so ideal if you don't want to drive or rely on public transport.
Also just off Keelman way cycle route.
