Well Inishindie did you manage to track down that spud ? I'm also in the hunt for some Champions and was wondering if you were successful and where to go for them ?

Hi

Monkeynic put us onto seedsavers, who apparently have them in...

http://www.irishseedsavers.ie/

Couldn't see them on the website so it might be a phone call...

Cheers

Ian

Apparently one must join up as a subscriber before they let you buy the heritage varieties. Something to do with limited stock. I only want a few spuds Crying or Very sad

Thanks for the reply.
