Seed potatoes, varieties Charlotte and Desiree, are available at the hut at 15p per tuber. Buy them now to ‘chit’, which means to grow short fat shoots which will give the seed potatoes a head start when you plant them out towards the end of March and April weather permitting. To chit your potatoes put them with the cluster of eyes on top in a tray or egg box in a light, cool and dry place. Onion sets, shallots and broad beans are also on sale. For growing seeds we have a range of growing media, as well as things to add to composts to aerate them and improve drainage such as sands and grits (sold by the kilo), vermiculite and perlite. Seed trays, modules and pots are available in a range of sizes. Lyn Davies .
