Annual Potato Day

  • URC Church 25 Edwards Ln Nottingham, NG5 3AA United Kingdom (map)

The POTATO DAY for Nottingham is BACK!

Entry fee is £1

Entry is free to members of Nottingham Organic Gardeners. To join the group officially and be a paid up member ask for details on the day and entrance fee will be refunded.

Our annual Potato Day gives local people the opportunity to buy seed potatoes by the tuber and choose from over 40 varieties. Our members enjoy this busy community day and bring home-made produce to sell and cakes to eat. 

Where possible we source organically grown, heritage and unusual varieties.

Potato Days are held throughout the country so everyone can choose varieties suitable to their soil and taste, and we organic gardeners can select for blight, scab and pest resistance. We sell potatoes by the tubor so you can try as many varieties as possible for the cheapest price. Only 18p per tuber this means you can choose lots of varieties and pay a great price. 

Potato Day is held at the end of January to give plenty of time for chitting and an early start if the weather allows!

 Additional information available. Lists of varieties will be posted here and emailed out to our members closer to the date.
