Maiden Newton 6th Annual Potato Day & ‘Grow Your Own’ Fair

23 February 2019 - 23 February 2019
Maiden Newton Village Hall View map »

Maiden Newton Allotments Association is holding its sixth Annual Potato Day on Saturday 23rd February. In what has become a popular annual event, Maiden Newton Village Hall will open its doors between 10.30am and 2.00pm to welcome all keen gardeners, be they allotment veterans, experienced enthusiasts or complete novices who would like to talk to some experts, find helpful advice and share tips on all things gardening.

You can buy your spuds by the single tuber if you only have a small plot, although an amazing range of over 60 varieties of seed potatoes will be available. Far more than just potatoes will be on offer, though. In fact, this event could kick-start your gardening year with almost everything you need. 700 varieties of heritage and heirloom seeds, many varieties of onion sets and shallots, together with some unusual tubers, rhubarbs, artichokes and dahlias will all appeal to anyone wanting to get stuck in to their kitchen garden. Lots of herb plants will be available this year too and if fruit is more to your taste, there will be a range of raspberry varieties and soft fruit (including the new Pinkcurrant) as well as almond, mulberry, peach, apple, nectarine and quince trees.

Admission is free, plenty of refreshments will be on hand and local arts and craft stalls will be taking part too. And if you feel up to it, why not enter the potato-in-a-bag, sunflower, and pumpkin competitions? Take the seeds away and come back in August to have your results weighed and measured at our Village Produce Show.

St Philip and St James Church Hall View map »

National potato enthusiast and campaigner Alan Wilson is going to host the first seed potato day in his home town of Fleet, at St Philip and St James Church Hall, 91 Kings Road. Up to 70 different varieties will be up for sale. It’s part of Alan’s drive to raise potato variety awareness. He has been working with events like this for more than 25 years. The entrance fee is just £1 and this will go to All Saints Church rebuild funds following the roof fire there three years ago.
The potatoes will be offered for sale by Charlton Park Garden Centre with whom Alan collaborates at other like-minded events. Many of the varieties will be sold loose so you can simply buy what you want. In addition, the full Wilson’s Wonders range will be on display to take home and eat -seven varieties you rarely find. These have been grown locally at Lodge Farm, North Warnborough, Hook, Hampshire. For more information contact Alan Wilson on 07377 539043.
