How to grow:
Sow on early April into drills and earth up as they grow. Good weed supressant during growth with dual blight resistance in both leaves and tubers.
Potatoes love a rich fairly loose soil. Deep and well drained with plenty of organic matter. Grow potatoes in a different spot each year helps keep them healthy. Newly dug grassland can hold eel worm, so best to break new ground with something else. They dislike frost, so a warm sunny spot and keep the ground moist, preferably by watering from below.
All potatoes can be dined upon by slugs and aphids. Keep a clear strip around your potato patch as slugs don’t like to cross bare ground.
