At the Roots and Shoots charity’s beautiful acre and a half site in the heart of Kennington, SE11, you will find a fine selection of seed potatoes - heritage and modern, as well as a wealth of advice and expert guidance on potato growing and all aspects of gardening.
There will be over sixty varieties of potatoes (as individual tubers) on sale along with onion and shallot sets, planting garlic etc. There will be also Pennard Plants’ own extensive range of heritage seeds, fruit trees, soft fruit, kitchen garden plants and plenty more.
In addition, there will be children’s art activities alongside stalls selling honey and honey products, bee jewelry, potato themed lunches, homemade cakes, tea and coffee etc.
The event is suitable for gardeners of all abilities and experience, from old hands to beginners and everyone in between.
Proceeds from the event will go towards the ‘Natural Roots’ project at Roots and Shoots – ‘Environmental Education for All’.
