Top Tips

Before planting out, we suggest 'chitting' by standing round end upwards in egg boxes, in cool, light room for 2-3 weeks, until small shoots emerge from the eyes.

Care Information

  • Start with a little compost in the base of your container, about 15-17cm. Place the tubers onto the compost and half fill the pot. Keep some horticultural fleece handy, should cold nights threaten.
  • Green shoots will eventually poke up through the compost, and when they do, cover them with another layer of compost, water and feed. Keep on adding as the plants grow until you reach the top of the pot or bag.
  • First and second earlies will grow quicker than maincrop potatoes which are in the pots for longer, so require more regular watering.
  • In the ground, first earlies will take around 14 weeks to mature, second earlies around 16 weeks, but in warm containers you can knock a couple of weeks off that, particularly if you like to eat them small and tender.
  • New potatoes are at their best eaten immediately, so pull out only what you want for one meal, leaving the rest to grow on.
