Seed potatoes are in!
Now is time to buy seed potatoes. We have a great choice of varieties - old favourites such as Foremost, Charlotte, Desiree and Golden Wonder - as well as novelty varieties, such as Salad Blue. If you want to protect your precious crop from the risk from blight, try planting Sarpo Mira.
Once bought, your seed potatoes need to be ‘chitted’ which simply means putting them in a cool bright spot and encouraging sturdy shoots to develop over the coming weeks. Potatoes can be planted from mid-February onwards so that when the first foliage appears the risk of frost will have passed. For more information, see our recent blog.
Our seed potatoes are available in various pack sizes ranging from ‘Taster Packs’ to two kg bags.
