How to plant and grow potatoes


1 Christmas Cropping Collection (69587)

Keep potato plants well watered throughout the growing season. Second early crops can be harvested 13 weeks from planting when the foliage begins to turn yellow and die back. After harvesting, store potatoes in a cool, dark frost-free position until you are ready to use them. Second cropping varieties will easily store until December for a lovely home-grown addition to your Christmas lunch.
Second cropping potato crops do not require 'chitting'. Plant them as soon as they are received in June or July. If this is not possible, keep the seed potatoes cold (min 3°C) until planting. Fill the potato bags by one third with good quality compost mixed with plenty of well rotted manure. Space 3 seed potatoes in each bag on top of the compost and then cover them with more compost and manure until the bags are two thirds full. Place the bags in a sunny position and keep the compost moist until shoots appear through the soil surface. When shoots reach approximately 10cm (4”), cover them with more compost and manure until the bags are full.
