The Dumfries ‘Tattie Challenge’ 2019
We are not taking any more new applications for Seed Potatoes but if you have already signed up and and have not yet picked yours up, please contact us and we will see what we can do.
Potatoes are one of the easiest crops to grow. They also help to prepare the
ground for planting other crops. If you have a small corner of garden, no
matter how untidy, or space outside for a large container, then the Tattie
Challenge will help you to get started.
Individuals, families, schools, businesses and other organisations can all take part.
- The sooner you can get started with outside preparations the better.
Select and prepare your plot – you will need a spade for this
You could also use a large container –
- Collect your FREE seed potatoes in early spring – we will be giving away the seed potatoes at various location in February and March – if you sign up we will let you know where and when.

Harvest – digging them up is half the fun. How many will you get? How
big will they be?
Enjoy your delicious home-grown tatties.
