Mid March – end April, again August – September

Always buy quality seed potatoes

You don’t need an allotment or large veg patch in which to grow potatoes – you can produce a delicious tasting in no more than a large pot or old compost bag.


It is important to buy fresh new tubers each year from a reliable source since these should be virus free. They can be found in all the larger seed catalogues, from specialists, online or via one of the many potato days which are held around the country.
