Our Feedback
Good morning, I have just received my first delivery from you (various vegetable plants) and wanted to say how pleased I am with the quality of the plants you sent me! The plants arrived on the day you said they would, carefully packed and in very good condition. They were larger than I was expecting which made planting them really easy. Thank you too for the helpful information about planting enclosed with each plant as well. I shall be recommending you to all my friends and family! Your website is very good too!

  • 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.
