British potato enthusiast sows seeds for more heritage varieties

A potato enthusiast from Hampshire in the UK has produced six more heritage varieties. Among those being produced by Alan Wilson, who lives in Fleet, Hampshire, is a potato called Fortyfold, thought to be the oldest variety grown in Britain, having been introduced in 1836. Stephen Lloyd reports for In Your Area.

The spuds are being grown by Gavin Janaway at Lodge Farm in North Warnborough near Odiham, and will be sold there in the autumn in Newlyns Farm Shop. They will also be on sale under Wilson
