Buy your seed potatoes, onion sets, shallots and broad beans from the Hut. This year we have four potato varieties to choose from: Lady Christl, a first early; Charlotte, a second early and salad potato; Nicola, a good flavoured new/salad potato and Romano, a maincrop potato. They are grown by Scottish farmers and are virus free. We sell them by the tuber, so you can buy the number you require. The onion set varieties on order are: Hercules, Stuttgart and Red Baron. The shallots are Golden Gourmet. The broad beans are the hardy Aquadulce. For more information about these varieties please visit our website or come to the Hut on Sunday mornings from 10am to 12noon. Email any queries to: firstname.lastname@example.orgLyn Davies
