Not too difficult to grow
Buy disease-free ‘seed’ potatoes. Plant 15cm deep. Space ‘earlies’ 30x50cm apart after six weeks in a cool light place to grow shoots. Plant ‘maincrops’ at 35x70cm.
Protect shoots from frost with fleece. ‘Earth-up’ soil around stems when 15cm tall (leave top leaves showing).
Dig up ‘earlies’ as needed once plants flower. Dig up ‘maincrops’ three weeks after leaves yellow. Remove all tubers.
