Nothing beats the taste of home grown, just lifted new potatoes!
This Complete Patio Potato Growing Kit means that anyone can now grow delicious, fresh potatoes. You don't even need a garden - a patio, balcony or courtyard will do! Just add compost and water and you will harvesting your first New Potatoes as early as May from a March planting.
We have included 3 fantastic varieties to give a range of harvest dates. 'Swift' (Early) - as it's name implies, this is a very fast-cropper, reaching harvest in 8-9 weeks from planting in March, producing gorgeous, soft new potatoes in abundance. 'Charlotte' (Salad) - perfect as a new potato, or used in salads, yet keeps well for boiling too. 'Desiree' (Maincrop) - the classic red skinned, yellow fleshed potato that has been a garden winner for decades. Great for boiling or mashing, but we love them best as jacket potatoes, with a lovely crispy skin!
Update - please note, varieties may change as season progresses.
This is the perfect way to grow your own potatoes but what's even better is it requires no back-breaking digging whatsoever! The Heavy Duty 30 Litre Pots can be used again and again and the Organic Potato Fertiliser can be used all around your vegetable garden.
Includes: 3 varieties of prime quality seed potatoes (each net contains 6 'Turbo' tubers), 3 Heavy Duty 30 Litre Pots and 1kg Organic Potato Fertiliser.
Potatoes will be packed in the bottom pot, underneath the other two, in order to protect them.
Note: Your seed potatoes will need chitting prior to planting. On receipt, stand them in an egg box in a cool, light room so they can begin chitting (shooting). Leave for 3-4 weeks, and short dark shoots (chits) will emerge. Take care not to damage these when handling or planting.
Keep your potatoes well watered as they grow - dry conditions will result in a considerably reduced crop.
