Please Note

These seeds should ideally be sown this season. All our packets have ‘Sow by Date’ guidance on them, this is the date the seeds should be sown in order to achieve the highest rate of germination. You will still see the same high-quality plants if sowing in seasons after the ‘Sow by Date’ but may see a reduction in germination rate

Description

  • The perfect amount for refilling your potato planter
  • Autumn-cropping
  • Salad-type variety
  • Arrive ready to plant out

This Christmas harvest collection contains 3 1kg bags of the below varieties;

  • Charlotte - A firm, creamy-yellow variety with a mouth-watering flavour, and is perfect hot or in salads! Plant in July, and the excellent shallow-eyed, long-oval tubers (which are 50% bigger than other salad varieties) will be ready to harvest between November and December, just in time for Christmas.
  • Maris Peer - A tasty, salad-type variety that can be used in hearty meals or as healthy sides.
  • Jazzy - Potato Jazzy plants reward you with big quantities of potatoes, perfect for making potato salads. Versatile Jazzy makes impressive roasties and good mash potato too. This variety gives impressive yields.

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 in late autumn to early winter, just in time for Christmas. 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 your potato planters aren't too heavy, bring them indoors on cold nights and 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 Potatoes (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.

All our seed potatoes are graded to a size 35mm x 35mm to 55mm x 55mm. This means that the smallest seed potatoes in the sample will not fall through an 35mm square. This does mean there will be various sizes within the pack. More modern varieties are more equal in size but as we want to offer the more unusual and Heritage varieties, these are more variable but we will always supply the weight stated. Any harvest will depend on individual growing conditions but generally smaller potatoes will produce smaller crops and larger potatoes will produce larger crops. But for example 1kg of seed potatoes will produce the same overall harvest whether the seed potatoes are small or large.
