How you will receive your plants:

Selected by our team of experts and sent from our nursery, you will receive seed potatoes in early January in a breathable net bag that can be recycled as for plastic bags. This keeps the potatoes together in a pack that is nice and airy – perfect to keep them healthy while in transit.

Can’t plant straight away?

Ideally, you should aim to start chitting your potatoes (see below) within a week of receiving them, but if this is not possible, store them in a cool, dark place until you are ready to use them.

Planting tips and hints:

Around 4-6 weeks before planting, it’s a good idea to ‘chit’ your seed potatoes, especially first and second early potatoes. To do this, place them in a cool, bright place with most of the ‘eyes’ pointing upwards to allow shoots to sprout. The shoots should be dark green or purple. If the shoots are white and spindly, move the potatoes to a cooler, brighter spot.

Once the shoots are around 2.5cm long, the potatoes are ready to plant. Remove all but the strongest two shoots from each potato.

Planting potatoes in growing bags:

Place the bags in a sunny, frost-free spot. Fill each bag with multipurpose compost up to about 2.5cm from the rim of the bag. Plant 2-3 chitted seed potatoes per bag, about 12cm deep with the shoots pointing upwards. Cover them over gently with compost, taking care not to damage the shoots.

Water the bags regularly and feed fortnightly with potato fertilizer.

Harvest first early potatoes in June or July, second earlies in July-August and maincrop potatoes from late August-October once their leaves have yellowed.
