    I have a 23.9 ounce tattie in a bucket in my kitchen.. Not many of them to the pound . Mind you it is a show variety named Amour. watery and horrible

    I'd budget for 8 - 10 seed sized spuds per kilo

    I bypassed the Bonnie Dundees and went for a Highland Prince - wonder what the new year will bring!
    Whooops - now what are the dogs getting up to?

    Aye, you can dress it up with posh foreign words if you want, make it look all glamorous and exciting - but at the end of the day it is a lot of effort and expense and it leaves a hollow hunger and a bad taste in the mouth !
    (But I'm not bitter or twisted on the subject of amour. )

    Having seen the cost of delivery, without even looking to see what counts as "Scottish Highlands", I think all I'll be buying there is veggie seeds.
    There's no point reading history if you don't use the lessons it teaches.

    Head-hunted member of the Nutter's Club - can I get my cranium back please ?

    Kenny, it's worth taking a trip to Parkhill Garden Centre at Dyce in the springtime for seed spuds. They had over 100 varieties last year and with some varieties you can even buy single tubers. Apologies to those who live further away but kenny is relatively local to me
