Grow your own colonies

Its time to start the Stockbridge Colonies Association Spud in a bucket competition. The competition runs from April-July 2010.

Following the fun and success of this event the last 2 years, you have the opportunity to prove you can grow the biggest and most spuds in the Colonies! There are no rules – the spud you get has to be grown in the bucket you’re given. You can do anything you like from there on – soil, sun and water highly recommended!


Delivery is expected to be mid April with the judging date to be set for July – maturing time for these spuds is approximately 8-10 weeks. Prizes given for biggest spud & best crop – adults and children’s prizes. Entries £5 (on delivery/collection) – no limit per family but spuds are limited so hurry! Call Jane Smith to register on 332 7279 or email by Tuesday 6 April. P.S. If you have still have your bucket from last year please return it so it can be reused!
