We have had our delivery of seed potatoes, onions, shallots and garlic.
Potatoes are available in 2kg Carri packs and taster packs with around 10 seed potatoes in a pack.
Onions and shallots are in pre-packs, Garlic is in a pack of 1 or 2 bulbs per pack.
This year our garlic, shallots, onions and potatoes have come from Taylors Bulbs again. The potatoes are available in a 2kg carry home pack and taster packs of 10 seed potatoes for spring planting.
Our range contains First and Second Early, Main Crop and Sapro Mira the Super Blight resistant seed potatoes. The Seed Potato Taster Pack is ideal for the gardener requiring smaller quantities and a range of varieties.
With a large selection of potato varieties in our range, choosing which Seed Potatoes to plant can be a bit daunting! So here is a short guide to help choose which varieties to grow:
The seed potato packs are colour coded; blue for “First Earlies”, orange for “Second Earlies” and green for “Maincrop”.
First and Second Earlies will give you “new potatoes” in the summer, Maincrops will give you tubers for eating in the autumn and enough to store over winter for later use.
First Earlies will typically be ready for harvesting in June/July, Second Earlies in July/August and Main Crops from August onward but if storing then can be harvested in September or October.
