Second cropping potato crops do not require 'chitting'. Plant them as soon as they are recieved. If this is not possible, keep the seed potatoes cold (min 3°C) until planting. Avoid planting in soil where potatoes have grown for two years in succession as this will increase the risk of disease. Prepare the planting area 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 37cm (15”). Rows should be set out 75cm (2'5”) apart.Place the seed potatoes into 10cm (4”) deep trenches and backfill the soil to refill the trenches. Where space is limited, try growing them in potato bags on the patio.
When shoots reach 20cm (8”), mound up soil around the shoots leaving just a few cm showing. Repeat this process after a further 3 weeks. During the growing season, weed between rows and keep plants well watered during hot periods. 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.
