1kg "Picasso" Seed Potatoes

A garden and allotment favourite, the solanum tuberosum "Picasso" potato plant produces huge yields of waxy-fleshed tubers. Bred from the "Cara" potato, the Picasso has the same smooth, light yellow skin with striking pink eyes. It is popular with growers due to its good all-round disease and drought resistance. With its mild flavour and good firm texture, his versatile potato has a range of uses in the kitchen, and is particularly good for baking and mashing.

When Your Plants Arrive…

  • Unpack your plants: Preferably straight after they arrive, you should carefully unpack your plants. They may appear slightly tired after their journey, however they will soon perk up again.
  • Identify each plant: Each type of plant (but not each individual plant) will be clearly labelled. Lay them out into their respective plant types (such as wild rocket, cauliflower, or peas).
  • Provide a drink: The roots of your plants may be dry, so provide all of them with a nourishing drink of water. Ensuring that the roots are stood upright, submerge the roots of each plant for a few minutes in a container of clean water.
Planting Your Vegetables or Herbs…

  • Their position: For the best results, plant your vegetables in a site that receives full sun.
  • Soil types: You should always avoid waterlogged soils. This is because they can lead to root rot and compacted surroundings, which will hinder your vegetables’ growth.
  • Planting distance: Plant your plugs between 15 - 20cm apart, and keep their stems level with the soil. Each row is best spaced 15 - 30cm away from one another.
  • Watering requirements: Water when planting, and also during periods of drought.
  • Hardiness: Our trusted nursery staff will attentively care for your vegetables, and only deliver them when it is warm enough for them to be planted in your garden.
