Potato House UK
We would like to welcome all Skea Organics customers in our brand new online shop where you find a wide selection of Speciality, Heritage and Organic seed potatoes. Under the new name but with the same high quality seed potatoes which we have have been supplying to farmers, gardeners and allotment holders for many years from the heart of Scotland.
It is over fifteen years now since we started Skea Organics, the parent of Potato House UK, and registered as an organic seed potato supplier.
In 2010 we decided to extend our variety list of Heritage and Speciality seed potato varieties which have long histories and exclusive characteristics. We have developed into highly recognised name in the potato industry and now supply not only all over the UK but to most of Europe as well.
Leary’s Organic Seeds
Leary’s Organic Seeds have worked extensively with other organic farmers in the UK and in Holland who produce organic seed potatoes and organic onion, shallot and garlic sets. We’ve set up the first commercial company supplying organic seed potatoes and organic onion, shallot and garlic sets to farmers and growers. Our customers ranged from large organic arable farmers supplying supermarkets to smaller dedicated growers operating vegetable box deliveries and farm shops. We have extensive experience in the growing of organic crops and in learning how to deal with pests and diseases without relying on chemical fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides.
