Our Feedback
Good morning Just wanted to say thank you for my recent order of 200 Heath Pearlwort. It arrived very quickly, exactly when you said it would, and well packaged. The plant quality was excellent, with all the plants having good root systems and looking very healthy. I don't normally write when I receive an order from a company, but felt that you really deserved it as I was very impressed by your nursery. Thank you
Mrs D Hackett, Belper

  • 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.
