Saturday 9th February 2019 is the date of the next Potato Day, doors open 9.30am. The place will be the same, Stonham Barns, Stonham Aspal, Suffolk. IP14 6AT. Potato tubers are ordered and there is a page on this website to tell you what we expect. If we are advised of crop failures, we will change that page.

We have heard from some growers experiencing blight, but it is a long time since we had a blight-free year for most of us. This is actually disappointing for Amateur Potato Breeders, whose new cultivars have not been put to the test. See the page on potato breeding. 

Potato Day appreciates hearing from you. We are open to new ideas that will work. We need you to make it successful after all! You are using, now, the oldest Potato event in the UK. We must be doing something right.








List title

The East Anglia Potato Day
is an annual event that has
been running since 1996.

It is organised and run
entirely by volunteers from
three organic gardening groups:

Norfolk Organic Group
Suffolk Organic Gardeners
Ipswich Organic Gardeners Group.


2018 offers about 80 varieties 
of seed potatoes, which are
sold as individual tubers, so
that you can buy as many
or as few as you require.

We also aim to offer as many
organic varieties as possible,
usually about 25%.
