1kg "Swift" Seed Potatoes

As the name suggests, solanum tuberosum Swift potatoes are best known for their ability to produce the earliest harvest of all potatoes. The plants produce a good crop of oval-shaped potatoes with thin light brown skin, a waxy texture and only a few shallow eyes, making them easy to peel. The potatoes are a great all-rounder in the kitchen, but work best as new potatoes for boiling, or eating in salads. The plants have a short foliage and bushy habit- making them ideal for container growing- plus great resistance to diseases and pests.

Potatoes are easy to grow. Below we address some common queries:

  • Hardiness: protect potatoes from frost.
  • Planting In Pots: suitable for growing in planters or bags, but make sure excess water can drain.
  • Position: plant in the sun with partial shade for best results.
  • Soil Types: plant in fertile, well-drained soil.

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.
