We had to check it wasn't April Fools' Day when we heard that Morrisons is selling the UK's first-ever potted 'Ketchup and Chips' plant for £5 in stores from today.

Answering the prayers of chips fans across the country, the incredible multi-tasker grows fresh tomatoes and potatoes in one pot at the same time. Above the ground the plant will produce an abundance of cherry tomatoes, while white potatoes will grow below.

You can also get an Egg and Chips Plant

The innovative 'veg plot in a pot' can be grown inside and out - in a large patio pot or 40 litre bag. Ketchup & Chips is entirely natural, crafted together by hand with no genetic modification involved. When planted in late April, each plant can yield hundreds of sweet tomatoes from July to October, whilst simultaneously harvesting a hearty crop of potatoes - which can be boiled, mashed, roasted or made into chips, until late in the season.

Also available is the Egg and Chips Plant, another unique hybrid plant that grows aubergines and potatoes, costing £5.

Morrisons' garden expert, Glen Cooper says: "Many of our customers are green fingered. But over recent years we've witnessed the frustration of shoppers who have less and less space to grow their own. This new plant is just the solution for our shrinking gardens - and will enable everyone to follow their produce from plant pot to plate!"

Both plants will be available in Morrisons 101 Garden Centres UK-wide, while stocks last. For more information or to find your local store, visit morrisons.com.
