Hello - just wondering if anybody knows somewhere in se1/se17 where I could buy some seed potatoes?

B&Q on the Old Kent Road used to do them - perhaps give them a call?

They are here.

I bought mine at the 1 shop at the E&C last year. They were okay.

Thanks for your replies! I rang B+Q and had a slightly farcical conservation with one of the staff, who refused to go check whether they had any seed potatoes because they were at the other end of the shop, until he got fed up of me pestering him, put the phone down for 5 seconds then said 'yeah i checked we have them'.

I'll definitely try the pound shop.

Don't bother, all new potatoes are seed potatoes, look for Cyprus ones and stick them in the ground. Good luck.
