As plants begin to grow add more compost around them tofill up the potato sack. For a bumper pack, water when the plants flower (this is when the tubers begin to form) and feed as per instructions.Unpack immediately on arrival. 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.
