Potato ‘Adessa’ is the world’s first potato grown from seed to be made available to gardeners! This early maincrop variety cuts out the need for ‘chitting’ tubers, as it is supplied directly as plug plants. Simply plant them at the same time as your other vegetable plants, and watch them grow. You can even grow them in large patio pots if space is limited.

So there’s no need to despair if you forgot to order potato tubers in the winter. You can still enjoy a good crop of oval, yellow fleshed potatoes with a great flavour. They remain firm with cooking, making them very useful in the kitchen. Height and spread: 90cm (36").

Pot up Potato plug plants and grow them on in warm, frost free conditions. When plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, plant them out in their final containers or in well prepared open ground, in a sheltered position in full sun on moist well drained soil. Dig in plenty of well rotted manure. Plant potatoes in rows at a spacing of 30cm (12”). Rows should be set out 60cm (2’) apart.

Weed between rows and keep potato plants well watered throughout the growing season. If the risk of frost threatens, draw some soil up around the stems to protect them, or move potato bags to a frost free position in a shed or greenhouse. Early maincrop varieties can be harvested approximately 15 weeks from planting when the foliage begins to turn yellow and die back.
