Plant Care & Advice

Firstly 'chit' your seed potatoes by standing the tubers on end, either in a seed tray or egg box, ensuring the end with the most 'eyes' is uppermost. Stand in a bright, cool, frost-free position to grow strong new shoots about 2.5cm (1") long. Prepare the ground by incorporating plenty of garden compost or well-rotted manure. Rake to a fine tilth, adding general fertiliser as per manufacturers instructions. Aim to plant your seed potatoes when all risk of frost has passed. Dig a trench, or plant individually with a trowel. With sprouts facing upwards, plant each seed 6 inches deep, 12 inches apart, in rows 2 feet apart. Gently cover the seed. As shoots emerge, carefully earth up the soil around them to form a ridge. Continue doing this throughout the growing season, watering well as needed.
