Hello, i visited your nursery earlier today, i have to tell you: i was seriously impressed, both with the friendly knowledgeable helpful Lady who was there serving me, and with the carload of plants i bought. I love my new cherry and apricot trees, my new blackberry bush and the amazing more than a tray load of olde worlde herbs i bought. I might not be able to visit often due to the 145 mile distance but i will certainly be back sometime. Thank You very Much. :)

First introduced in 1879, International Kidney is a classic old salad / early variety that has seen a resurgence in popularity for growing and harvesting early. Harvested prematurely it is a small, firm, waxy potato with possibly the sweetest flavour of them all with a thin skin that rarely needs peeling - great hot or cold and perfect for summer salads. Left in the ground longer, they become larger and more floury and take on their characteristic kidney shape.

  • Scab resistant.
  • Chit tubers by placing 'eye' face up in egg boxes or shallow trays and standing in a warm light location.
  • Once small green shoots (or chits) appear move to a cooler location for a few weeks before planting out.
  • For conventional growing, best planted out mid March-April. Later plantings will be fine but yield may be smaller.
  • Earlier crops can be produced by earlier planting under protection (heated glass, cold glass or polytunnel) - a technique that is being used by an ever increasing number of market gardeners, and something we have been doing each year at the nursery for over 20 years.
  • Dig trenches approximately 5" (12 cm) deep and 2 feet (60 cm) apart.
  • Press tubers into the base of the trench 12" (30 cm) apart with chits facing up and cover with soil.
  • Water in and keep the crop well watered in dry spells.
  • When the haulm (top growth of the plants) reaches 9" (23 cm) earth up around the plants leaving just the top 4" (10 cm) showing - repeat again later if required.
  • Potatoes should be ready for harvest approximately 10-15 weeks after planting.
