  • Perfect for pots and containers
  • Autumn-cropping
  • Arrive ready to plant out
  • Salad-type variety

Seed potato 'Charlotte' produces excellent shallow-eyed, long-oval tubers that are 50% bigger than other salad varieties. This firm, creamy-yellow variety has a mouth-watering flavour, and is perfect hot or in salads!

Whether you choose to grow the potatoes in open soil on the allotment, in a veg patch or in a purpose-made potato planter, harvest the crops between November and December, just in time for Christmas. By planting these seed potatoes in a well-sized potato planter, will enable you to locate it on the side of your allotment, patio, backyard or even on the balcony, wherever is most convenient to you.

To protect your potatoes from frost damage, cover them with a horticultural fleece when temperatures start to plummet at night. If you're growing them in a potato planter bring them indoors on cold nights, and if they're not too heavy, return them outdoors during the day.

As the stems of the potato plants start to develop, earth up the soil around the base every few days or so. This will discourage the edible tubers from greening-up and will prevent them from becoming poisonous.

These potatoes are happiest when planted in full sun.

Summer Planting Potaotes (Also known as Second Cropping or "Christmas")

These potatoes are specially treated through cold storage from December through to June/July without the use of any chemicals, this cold storages makes them desperate to grow in the warm summer temperatures. It's important to plant these potatoes at the optimum time whilst the days are still long to ensure they grow to their full potential. These specially treated potatoes are often referred to as "Christmas Potatoes" which is slightly misleading as they will in fact be ready to harvest in October and will not grow any larger after then. If left in the ground or containers and provided they are protected from harsh frosts they will happily keep until Christmas providing you with delicious homegrown potatoes for your Christmas dinner.
