Sarpo Kifli – Salad potato – creamy waxy potato. Sown as early main crop but will produce salad potatoes all season.
Sarpo Axona – Red maincrop (Aug to late Oct). It produces high yields of big regular tubers. Ideal for baking, mashing and roasting.

All members should by now have received an email containing the latest HAS Autumn newsletter. It certainly is worth a read -if you have not yet read it or have mislaid your copy then its useful to know that newsletters are always archived on the web site for later reference. One amendment has since been made to the original with a correction of the email address of our site manager. All other details remain the same and a link to the Newsletter is here:-
Please be aware that the judging of the plots this year, for our annual competition, will take place during the week commencing the 25th June. As is usual, all plots will be examined by our independent judges. (Unless you’ve previously requested exclusion from the competition). The Judges will of course need to gain access to each members plot to closely examine the crops. (The full judging criteria can be found within the documentation section of this site.) Finally, the results will be announced during the open day on the 8th July. Keep it looking its best and Good Luck.
