We have included 3 fantastic varieties of special 'second cropping' seed potato varieties: Charlotte, Maris Peer and Nicola, which are all second early maturity salad types with very good flavour. These have been held in cold store until now and will grow rapidly once planted - right up to the end July to give you ‘new’ potatoes through autumn and even up to Christmas:
Charlotte - One of the most popular salad potatoes in the UK, the instantly recognisable, oval-shaped tubers can grow much larger than other salad varieties and have a firm yellow waxy flesh.
Maris Peer - Chosen for its superb flavour, they are best when boiled and maintain a firm texture that does not split.
Nicola - Well-shaped, oval potatoes with creamy flesh that are perfect whether hot or cold - one of the tastiest new potatoes.
We’ve also thrown in 1kg of Organic Potato Fertiliser to ensure you give your potatoes the best growing environment available for heavy crops of tasty spuds…
Note: Your seed potatoes will need chitting prior to planting. On receipt, stand them in an egg box in a cool, light room so they can begin chitting (shooting). Leave for 3-4 weeks, and short dark shoots (chits) will emerge. Take care not to damage these when handling or planting.
Keep your potatoes well watered as they grow - dry conditions will result in a considerably reduced crop.
