GYOP Competition 2016

It is that time of year again, growing for the 'Grow Your Own Potatoes' National Competition

The competition is run by the Potato Council 'Grow Your Own Potatoes' Company. Last year we did really well and won a colourful garden bench made by Marmax for our school garden. So this year we will be trying to build on our success of last year. But the most important part of it is having fun!

We are set dates for the competition:

 Chitting Day: 23rd February

Planting Day: 8th March

Harvest Day: 14th June

So, at the moment we have our potatoes chitting, and next week we will be planting them in bags. We will have two varieties to grow: The national variety 'Rocket' and our regional variety 'Luciole'. I am sure we will have lots of fun as always as the weeks go by watching them grow!
