Rare and Local Potatoes

There are thousands of fantastic potato varieties but only a few are ever being sold. The reasons for this is usually yield or disease resistance but also the vested interests of plant breeders who receive royalties on recent introductions plays a part. My life long mission has been to raise potato variety awareness for both gardeners and the general public who buy potatoes.

Yet there is something else. Bringing food closer to people is another linked passion and this is a wonderful chance to see what you think. Gavin Janaway is a top grower and I had no hesitation in choosing Lodge Farm for the launch of Wilsons Wonders. They are planted and managed with professionalism and care for the environment which is also important to me.
