Jamieson Brothers are pleased to be the first to bring you this product online and at a great price.
No more is it blight or isn't it? this kit will answer the question in 3-5 minutes. Each kit is enough for taking 2 samples.

Bad weather

The cold weather has really set in now.
It has never been above -2 today and we can't send potatoes out or receive them in when the weather is like this due to the fear of frost damage.
Thankfully all warehouses are fully insulated and can with stand the cold weather.
We have now finished our limited offer of selling individual potato tubers and instead we are offering packs of 5 seed potatoes instead.
Our biggest sellers at the moment are Beauty of Bute, Flourball, Doon Pearl, Arran Pilot, Desiree and Charlotte.
Many customers are now using their free 10% discount and purchasing varieties like Majestic, Maris Piper and Golden Wonder as they are great chippers.
