 Tuber Sale Wed 16th Jan 13

Not so many varieties as last year!

about 40 members attended this year's sale. Quantities were down - probably due to the wet weather and tubers rotting.  Prices were up on last year but not as high as 2001 again the cold weather has not had much impact yet.  It may be that the plant sale in may does significant business - we'll see.
Thanks to all who brought tubers for sale and those who helped in the sale, setting up, clearing down and providing sandwiches & cake.


Pom prices dominate 

The highest prices were paid for Poms - few tubers and a few determined bidders meant that Moorplace went for £6.60 and Hallmark for £6.50 - much higher than the rest.

This year's tuber sale was well attended - see above photo.  There were 65 different varieties of tuber for sale, quite a reduction on last year.  There were a lot of Giant Decs - Purple Puff made a showing after plants were available last May   A complete list of the prices can be seen here:   Tuber sale prices
