Thank you all of you who came to the Feb 10th East Anglia Potato Day and made it such a success. And "sorry" to all of you who missed or forgot it. We try hard to keep everyone informed but can only do so much. Another potato event is coming in the Southend area soon, why not try them?

In the end we had 80 potato varieties. This year's varieties will be shifted to the archive webpage soon. A few sold out. Generally the quantities worked out well and not many gave us quality concerns.

We have just appreciated that we are the oldest potato event now. And have been since the Garden Organic potato event at Ryton stopped a year or two ago.

4 more Amateur Potato Breeders were recruited. See another page on this website. Lots of promising potato cultivars are emerging with Sarpo blight and virus resistance plus a possibility of resistance to potato cyst nematodes. 

Any ideas to share with Potato Day? Get in contact with us.

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%.
