Thanks very much to Ann Other who contacted us this morning with information that the Sydenham Potato Day and Seed Swap event later this month has been cancelled according to the Potato Days 2014 website. I am gutted as I was well looking forward to it!
On the site it mentioned that the next London event is the one sponsored by the RHS in February. It’s free to RHS members but I wonder how much it is to non-members like myself? I will contact the RHS and Potato day website and see what info can be gleamed.
RHS Potato Day
In conjunction with London Plant & Design Show
21st-22nd February 2014
RHS Horticultural Halls
Vincent Square, Westminster.
Free to RHS Members.
STOP PRESS: Chris from Pennards Plants on the Potato Day website emailed me today: “I do not organise this event and was told last week by the organiser that he was cancelling as he could not get the venue. We are involved in The London Potato Day being run in conjunction with the RHS at the Lindley Hall, Vincent Square, Westminster on 21st/22nd February where we will have our full range of potatoes (which we could not do at Sydenham) as well as our Heritage seeds, onion sets, shallots etc.” There is NO seed swap at this event!
