Northchurch Allotment Association – Potato PrizeChris Brown
For many years Woods of Berkhamsted have supplied the prize for the annual Northchurch Allotment Association potato growing competition. The Association is extremely grateful that the manager Rachael Patey has decided to continue this long running local relationship.
The winner Caroline Fudge was presented with the spade and hoe donated by Woods at the Association AGM in February. (She is pictured here with the Association Chairman, Paul Coleman).
The winning yield was 36.5lbs from just 3 Desiree seed potatoes. The Allotment Association Chairman and the winner acknowledged that this result reflected not only on the skill of the grower but also on the quality of the seed potatoes which are always purchased from Woods!
This year the challenge will be the highest yield from three King Edward potatoes so please watch this space
