Second Cropping (Christmas)


Known as Christmas potatoes, second cropping varieties do not need to be chitted, are planted in early August and will be ready to harvest in approximately 11 weeks. You can either dig them up and eat them in late Autumn, or store them for your Christmas dinner! Protect them from frosts to be sure of getting a good harvest - growing them in bags or containers allows you to easily move them to a frost-free position.


Unfortunately the latest date that we are able to despatch second cropping potatoes for Christmas growing is the end of July. We are not happy to despatch second cropping potatoes after this time due to our commitment to quality as our horticultural experts do not believe that customers will grow quality crops of these varieties after this time. Please check back in the autumn when stocks will be available to purchase for delivery next year.
