Planting Essentials

Potatoes are wonderfully easy to grow, so are well suited to the beginner gardener. Below we address some common queries surrounding their care:

  • Hardiness: Protect the potatoes from frost.
  • Planting In Pots: These are suitable for growing in planters or bags, but make sure that excess water can drain.
  • Position: Plant your potatoes in full sun for the very best results.
  • Soil Types: Fertile, well-drained soil is recommended.

Soil Preparation: Ensure the soil is well-drained, and dig in plenty of manure as potatoes are heavy feeders.

Planting Distance: Plant seeds around 25cm (10") apart, and around 10cm (4") deep into the soil. Rows should be around 75cm (2ft 6 inches) apart.

Pest Control: Take precautions against cutworms, slugs, wireworms, and potato cyst eelworms.

Watering Requirements: Water regularly, particularly during dry spells.
