Seed Potatoes to the Isle of Man

We are now able to offer our seed potatoes to the Isle of Man due to popular request.
For a list of our P&P please go to our website and select the postage page for a full run down of our prices.
Our seed potatoes have sold so well this year that I have ran out of stock on many 5packs of seed potatoes. I hope to be able to pack some more in the near future and put them back in the shop.

Seed To N.Ireland

We are now able to offer Scottish seed potatoes to N.Ireland as we continue to expand our postal services. We hope to be able to offer postage to The channel Isles, The Isle of Man and all other remote parts of the UK very soon.

More Swift Coming Soon

We have managed to source the last 3 tonnes of Swift that will be for sale this year so I hope to have them back on the website for sale soon.
Most of the popular varieties are sold out or selling out fast and today has been a very hectic day with everyone wanting their potatoes sent at the same time.
Go to my website now and sign up to my free registration page to receive a 10% discount on your order and you will be notified of new stock as they arrive so that you can have first chance of buying them. It takes less than 20 seconds to register.
