Great potatoes, they arrived the next day along with my hoe so i'm really looking forward to planting these in the coming weeks. Probably my favourite potato, a nice easy grow in the raised bed.

I am looking at ordering Potato seeds. This is what your web-page says:- "We sell seed potatoes in 5 pack sizes: From 5 tuber trial packs to 25kg sacks for the larger grower. Please choose your pack size using the 'PACK SIZE' selector above the 'ADD TO CART' button." There is NO Pack Size selector on your potato pages. How do I know how to order different weights? Is "1" in the drop-down number box = 1Kg ?? And is the price shown for 1kg or what??? Thanks, John Healy

Hi Elishe I am afraid the Homeguard crop failed last season so they are almost impossible to get. So we won't have them in this season Regards Niall Quickcrop
