Congratulations on successfully growing and harvesting your potatoes. We hope that you have enjoyed taking part this year and have harvested a winning crop.
Due to all of the uncertainty around the project in 2022, all schools taking part received the same two varieties:
Variety 1 - CASABLANCA
Variety 2 - SARPO UNA
This year there will be two prizes awarded nationally for the schools growing the heaviest weight of each variety.
Please send your entries to email@example.com before Friday 1st July 2022.
Winners will be notified by telephone and prizes awarded in September
Prizes may change depending on availability
For 2020 ONLY no prizes were awarded for largest individual potato, the largest number of potatoes harvested from one grow bag or heaviest regional varieties.
Remember to collect pictures of your potatoes being harvested and of your harvested potatoes on the scales, showing the weight, to support your heaviest weight entries.
Once your potatoes are harvested, washed and weighed, make sure the two varieties are kept separate and, using the entry form supplied, send in the following:
1 Heaviest weight from one growbag of your national variety - Rocket
2 Heaviest weight from one growbag of your regional variety - Varies
This has been a very unusual year, these revised plans are for 2020 only and we hope to be back running the competition as normal again in 2021.
Why not celebrate your school's potato-growing achievements by printing off your very own Grow Your Own Potatoes Certificate?
All you have to do is print and then fill in your school’s name and weight of crops grown, and display in the classroom.
A brilliant way for the children to remember their success.
