Solanum tuberosum "Arran Pilot" is one of the UK's favourite varieties of garden potato. These seeds produce high yields of white-fleshed waxy potatoes with an excellent taste. They can be eaten straight out of the ground in salads, or boiled as a new potato. The plants have good resistance to slugs and common scab, making them a good choice for exhibiting.
Potatoes are easy to grow. Below we address some common queries:
Soil Preparation: remove weeds and large stones and dig in plenty of fertiliser or manure.
Planting Distance: plant seeds around 25cm (10in) apart, around 10cm (4in) deep into the soil. Rows should be around 60cm (2ft) apart.
Pest Control: ensure good soil sterilization, rotational practices, and crop nutrition to reduce risk of pests.
Watering Requirements: water regularly, particularly during dry weather.
