We're excited to announce that the tattie challenge is being run again this year - so something for us all to look forward to! The event this year is being kindly sponsored by Craigend Nursery in Cardross, who have generously provided the seed potatoes. The competition is open to both Society members and non-members, with an entry fee of £1. The registration forms need to be received by Friday 5th March, with the seed potatoes available to be picked up on Saturday 6th March. Download the registration form (below) for more details on what to do and the time / location to pick up your seed potatoes.
This is a fun event, with great excitement on weigh-in day - which usually is on a weekend in August at Ardardan Estate. And after your weigh-in, you then have tatties to take home and enjoy! Growing potatoes is great fun for all the family, and as they are grown in a bag you don't need to have a big garden or a veg plot. Literally just some outdoor space to put the potato bag and to watch them grow! We love to see entries from children, as well as adults, and hope you will give it a go!
For further details and to register, please download the registration form. This is available below as a PDF, or a word document if you wish to return the form by email. Remember this needs to be returned by Friday 5th March.
