POTA­TOES

Go Gardening - - Winter Planting -

Pota­toes are one of the eas­i­est and most re­ward­ing crops to grow. Where space is lim­ited, you can grow them in a bag. Cer­ti­fied seed pota­toes, avail­able in gar­den cen­tres from June or July, are guar­an­teed to be true to type, free of disease and vig­or­ous. In cold cli­mates, plant­ing is timed so that the shoots emerge after frosts have fin­ished. In frost-free cli­mates pota­toes can be planted any time. Plant some soon for a Christ­mas crop.
