Potato Days and Seed Fairs 2015

Organised or attended by Pennard Plants/Growing Old.

Our tenth year hosting these events in conjunction with Garden Clubs and societies.

Even more new venues added for 2015 so if you live in Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire and surrounding counties you should find an event close to you, we even have one in London!

At all these events in addition to a huge range of seed potatoes, there will be our Heritage and Heirloom seeds, onion sets, shallots and garlic bulbs, fruit trees, soft fruit and other edible plants such as rhubarb and asparagus.

All are welcome, experienced gardeners, allotment veterans, those who have never grown a vegetable in their lives, come and talk to the experts, plenty of advice available.

Many events are free, some make a small charge for entry towards club funds, all will have parking nearby. Refreshments are available at most of the events.
