Prior to planting, 'chit' the seed potatoes by setting them out in a cool, bright position (10C/ 50F) to allow them to sprout. Fill the potato bags by one third with good quality compost mixed with some well rotted manure. Space 3 seed potatoes in each bag on top of the compost. Fill the bags by another third and place 2 more seed potatoes on top of the compost. Finally cover them with more compost until the bags are full. Place the bags in a sunny position and water regularly to keep the compost moist.
Keep potato plants well watered throughout the growing season. 'Ping-pong ball' sized tubers can be harvested approximately 10 to 11 weeks after planting, or harvested as slightly larger tubers at 13 weeks from planting when the foliage begins to turn yellow and die back. After harvesting, store potatoes in a cool, dark frost-free position until you are ready to use them.

Spuds in a bag

These were the first potatoes I have grown, last year. I was very pleased with all yields and the flavours. I particularly enjoyed the Charlotte variety so have ordered them for this years crop. It was very easy to use the bags and would highly recommend this collection.

Grew these varieties for first time this year. All had delicious flavour. Great texture and very very buttery taste. Absolutately wonderful flavours. Cooked lots to eat with dinner and some to eat cold with salad next day, but so delicious ended up scoffing the lot in one evening!
