With a wide choice of varieties available you can pick you favourite or mix and match to sample different types.

As plants begin to grow add more compost around them tofill up the potato sack.

Set them out rose end (where the shoots occur) uppermost in egg boxes or something similar. Keep them in a light (not sunny) frost free room and allow the shoots to develop. Once the shoots reach approx. 3 cm tall(should be after 5-6 weeks), the potatoes are ready for planting. Plant at approx 12cm deep and 30cm apart from late March.
