    Planting/Growing Advice: Potatoes need a bit of depth, you can grow them in the ground, raised bed or in a deep planter. These should be planted in spring. If you receive them in Feb/Mar, it is best to chit them before planting out in late March/April. If received in April/May you can plant straight away without chitting.

    For earlies we recommend planting 30cm apart with 40-50cm between rows and for second earlies and main crops we recommend around 40cm apart with 75cm between rows.

    When to harvest: Earlies are usually ready when the flowers open and Maincrops are ready when the leaves have died. Look for these telltale signs to know when your spuds are ready, and then doublecheck by carefully scraping away the earth with your hand or a trowel to see that they’re a good size for harvesting.

  • Jazzy Seed Potatoes (Salad)

    £4.99
    (10 Tubers)

    A fantastic yield of salad potatoes

    We really love this variety for salad potatoes as they tend to come up quite small (perfect salad size!) They are usually ready to harvest in July, and have light, creamy skin and good texture. One of the benefits is that they will stand quite well in the soil for several weeks, so you needn’t harvest them all at once unless you have a problem with slugs/blight (in which case you can just dig them all up when ready and store in a  hessian sack or similar). All in all, a really good choice if you love potato salads.

    Number of tubers (seed potatoes): 10

    Variety: Jazzy

    In the kitchen: Great for salads

  • Marfona Seed Potatoes (Second Early)

    £4.99
    (10 Tubers)

    Big potatoes, and big yields

    Marfona produces a high yield of fairly large potatoes that will store well. You should harvest some good sized potatoes for baking, so if jacket potatoes are your faves, then this is the variety for you. It is a second early variety with reasonably good resistance to both scab and blight.

    Number of tubers (seed potatoes): 10

    Variety: Marfona

    In the kitchen: Great for baking, mashing, roasting

  • Nicola Seed Potatoes (Salad)

    £4.99
    (10 Tubers)

    Nicola is a dream potato for the amateur gardener.

    Bred in the early 1970s Nicola is a relatively new salad type – perfect for eating with the skins on, it is a classic new potato type. It has beautiful thin and smooth skin and you’ll find it is a very clean looking spud. It is a second early, so can be harvested in July.

    Number of tubers (seed potatoes): 10

    Variety: Nicola

    In the kitchen: Excellent steamed/boiled and served hot or cold in salads.

    Wilja is a great all-rounder.  It is a second early, so should be ready to harvest in July assuming conditions are favourable. It’s one of those varieties that is great for roasting, for chips, and for jacket potatoes, and it has a good, slightly earthy (but not overpowering) flavour.

    In the kitchen: Great for boiling

  • Maris Peer Seed Potatoes (Second Early)

    £4.99
    (10 Tubers)

    A trusted favourite & good for planting late…
    This amazingly popular variety produces reliably regular round shaped and medium sized potatoes. They will normally be ready to harvest in July, and since the texture remains firm they are particularly well suited to boiling. One of the things we like about them is that you can choose to plant them a bit later in the year for a Christmas crop – if you’d like to do this, store the seed potatoes in a dry paper sack (with a few holes for air circulation) in a cool, dark place and plant them in July. Otherwise, pop them in the ground in March/April after chitting and harvest in July.

    Number of tubers (seed potatoes): 10

    Variety: Maris Peer

    In the kitchen: This variety has many uses including boiling for salads, steaming and chipping.
