Potatoes


Potatoes are so easy to grow in the UK, whatever the size of your garden. You can grow them in the ground or in Potato Growing Bags; both will produce a good crop. Simply plant your potato tubers in the spring and you will be able to harvest them right through summer and autumn. From new potatoes to maincrop, there is nothing quite like the taste of homegrown produce harvested straight from the garden.


For help growing potatoes in bags or in the ground, see our easy potato planting guide: How to plant and grow potatoes.

Potato 'Setanta'

Solanum tuberosum

  • Maincrop

In a recent taste test Potato 'Setanta' was voted the best for roasting, with crisp, golden skin and buttery flesh which just melts in the mouth. High dry-matter content means this potato is also fantastic for baking, chips, and wedges. This late maincrop variety produces a high yield of medium sized, oval tubers with red skins and medium-yellow flesh. With higher drought tolerance than other varieties and good resistance to pests and diseases, including potato blight, 'Setanta' is an ideal choice for organic gardeners. Height and spread: 60cm (24").
