Becks, I'm getting mine from the bloke across the road who buys in bulk for lots of allotmenteers so gets them very cheap - how many do you need??
I've always fancied trying International Kidney (otherwise known as Jersey Royals) but haven't seen them at a reasonable price! Also, potatoes can taste different depending on the soil - so might not taste right!
Its worth bearing in mind that potatoes are not frost hardy so you don't want the shoots appearing above ground before frosts have passed, unless you can cover them. That's ok for a few plants but not for the 6 rows I have on the allotment!
