Couldn’t wait any longer. The polytunnel has kept the soil dry. The seed
potatoes have strong, stubby, green chits. So, I planted 6 Sharpes
Express & 6 Maris Bard today. I figured that if they do get caught by a
cold frost, I have still got some more chitting on the window-sill.
* planting depth 10cm
* cover the potato with soil
* planting distance in row 30cm
* distance between rows 60cm
Early potatoes are planted closer together than main crop, because we
harvest them when they are smaller.
Early potatoes should be ready for digging in 10-12 weeks!!
