Horticultural Society - GROW A POTATO IN A BAG COMPETITION

  • Saturday 8 February from 11am to 6pm
  • Sunday 9 February from 11am to 6pm
By popular demand we are repeating our ‘Grow a Potato in a Bag’ Competition! It is open to adults and children of all ages and there is no entry fee. In 2018 it was a huge success with nearly 100 entries. Seed potatoes, growbags and instructions will be supplied by the society and may be collected between 11.00am and 6.00pm on Saturday 8th February from 4 Asmuns Hill, NW11 6ET and on Sunday 9th February from 48 Erskine Hill, NW11 6HG. Only the potato and growbag supplied may be used. Your first task will be to ‘chit’ your potato. This means placing it somewhere warm and sunny for a few weeks to let it sprout and then planting your potato in your growbag on 28th March. Each crop will be harvested and weighed at the Flower Show on Saturday 13th June at 3.30pm.
