Your own home grown potatoes from June to October!
Our first and second early seed potatoes and main crop potatoes are now in stock and can be planted out from February to May. You can expect your first harvest early summer for first earlies (June/July) and July-September for second earlies. Main crop potatoes are harvested in September/October.
Earlies are small potatoes and are absolutely delicious! We love to parboil them and then saute in butter.
How to plant seed potatoes
Plant out at a depth of 10cm with at least 30cm between each potato.
Leave a minimum of 60 to 70cm between each row to give the potato plants enough room to grow.
Approx. 9 to 12 weeks after planting, your crop should flower – this means the first tubers are present.
Leave for 2 to 3 weeks after flowering for the skin to harden (this helps with storage) and then harvest.
