All 3 of my local garden centers (West Mids) have an abundance of Maris Piper

I have got 40 tonnes of Maris Piper at my place. Sounds like your being told porkies :(
Ulster Chieftan first earlies are nothing like Piper maincrop.

Wasn't a shortage when I got mine, which isn't a million miles away from you in Bognor.
