Plant now for new potatoes at Christmas!
Suitable for growing in pots and containers or in the garden and will yield delicious new potatoes late in the season.
Planting Time: July - September
Harvesting Time: November Onwards
To sprout seed potatoes, place in a light, cool area and protect from frost.
Planting can take place as soon as the risk of frost has passed in your area, during spring. Plant 4-5"" (10-12cm) deep in shallow ridges. Seed should be 8-9"" (20-22cm) apart in the row, with 2ft (60cm) between each row.
Earth the plants up when they are 8" (20cm) tall. This encourages a higher yield of potatoes.
Watering your plants well will improve crop yield and discourage scab from forming.
