The Annual Potato Challenge 2021

The Annual Potato Challenge is back by popular demand, to see who can grow the biggest weight of potatoes from one tuber grown in a bag. It’s free to enter, just pick up your potato and bag and have a go. We hope to have the grand weigh-in and barbeque in late August (Covid permitting) when there will be prizes for under 16s and over 16s. Collect your bag and potato now from outside 6 The Parklands, Scruton.

Scruton Allotments Website has been relaunched this year with a smart new look. The site includes a growing calendar, information about plots, news, blogs and a potted history of the Allotment Association. You will also find tips on how to grow potatoes in a bag and how to maximise your yield. Go to
