Planting out

Pride of Bute

Pride of Bute

High noon on Tuesday with the perfect conditions for planting out the three heritage varieties of Bute potatoes.  Over the course of the next year we hope to understand the part potatoes played in our agricultural heritage and their cultural value to Bute.  Helping us with the historical part of our Heritage Lottery Fund project will be local experts Brandanii Archaelogy and Heritage.

The project will develop strategies for the conservation of Bute Heritage Potatoes and use as a local crop.  We will learn the special skills associated with landrace and heritage seed harvesting, processing, storing and propagation.  Add our page to your favourites and keep up to date with the project as it progresses.
