Details

Britain’s favourite first early for 30 years, it is still a very good all-rounder. The oval tubers of medium size have shallow eyes, white skin and creamy white flesh. Plants show good drought-tolerance and scab-resistance.

Potatoes are one of the most rewarding vegetables to grow. There’s the nurturing process of chitting, planting and earthing-up, the anticipation of a good harvest as you dig through the soil and, of course, the unbeatable taste of fresh, home-grown, potatoes.

All potatoes (except for maincrops) will benefit from ‘chitting’ prior to planting out. The chitting process encourages the seed to sprout, which then when planted, helps them to establish more readily, leading to bigger crops. Simply place them, blunt end up, in an old egg box until the shoots are approximately 1½ to 2½cm (½ to 1in).

Potatoes are delivered in 1.5kg bags, each pack containing approx. 15-20 tubers.

Planting & Harvesting

Sow & Grow

Plant chitted tubers from late March (earlier in warmer areas) and lift when plants come into flower or drop buds from June.
