Thank you for my first order from your company. My herbs look healthy, but a little battered, but that was probably due to Royal Mail (Bless them!) for not reading alternative delivery instructions, as the plants arrived a day late due to the fact that the parcel had to be taken back to the Royal Mail depot for me to make alternative delivery arrangements. Unfortunately, I can't plant my herb plants today, due to the fact that it's raining; so they're having a good drink to recover from their Royal Mail ordeal. I will definitely order from the Victoriana Nursery Gardens again :-)

  • High yielding.
  • Scab resistant.
  • Stores well in the ground for about a month.
  • 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 to late April (they will be ready to harvest mid August), they can be planted from mid March depending on the weather! 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 15-17 weeks after planting.
