This Patio Potato Growing Selection means that anyone can now grow delicious, fresh potatoes. You dont even need a garden as a patio, balcony or courtyard will do! Just add compost and water and you will be harvesting your first new potatoes as early as 12 weks after planting.
We have included three popular 'second cropping' varieties: 'Charlotte', 'Pentland Javelin' and 'Desiree', which are all second early maturity salad types with very good flavour.
'Charlotte' - One of the most popular salad potatoes in the UK, the instantly recognisable, oval-shaped tubers can grow much larger than other salad varieties and have a firm yellow waxy flesh. Perfect for potato salads or boiled and dripping in butter.
'Pentland Javelin' - An early variety, producing lots of small, tasty potatoes. Ideal for boiling and also for roasting and baking.
'Desiree' - Creamy-yellow flesh with red skin, great for chips, roasting, jacket potatoes or simple boiling.
These special seed potatoes have been held in cold store until now and will grow rapidly once planted - right up to the end July to give you ‘new’ potatoes through autumn and even up to Christmas.
This is the perfect way to grow your own potatoes and what's even better is it requires no back-breaking digging whatsoever! The 'Grow-Pods' can be used again and again and the Organic Potato Fertiliser can be used all around your vegetable garden.
Note: Your seed potatoes will need chitting prior to planting. On receipt, stand them in an egg box in a cool, light room so they can begin chitting (shooting). Leave for 3-4 weeks, and short dark shoots (chits) will emerge. Take care not to damage these when handling or planting.
Keep your potatoes well watered as they grow - dry conditions will result in a considerably reduced crop.
