How To Grow

Instructions

Growing Instructions:

Potatoes can be grown in a wide variety of soils, but do best in deep, fertile, well drained loam. Plant in a sunny location and keep soil moist throughout the growing season. Avoid planting in heavy clay soil.

  1. Plant seed potatoes as soon as the soil is warm enough to cultivate. Large seed potatoes may be divided, but each portion must contain two to three eyes. Plant with eyes pointing up (cut side down) 8-12 cm (3-5”) deep and 30-40 cm (12-16”) apart in the row. Rows should be 60 cm (24”) apart.

  2. Once plants are 20-30 cm (8-12”) tall, hoe 10-15 cm (4-6”) of soil around plants to create hills. Hills of soil around the base of the potato plants help to preserve moisture and protect tubers from being exposed to sunlight which turns them to green.

  3. Potatoes may be harvested as soon as tubers are large enough to use. Potatoes must be harvested when tops yellow and die down.

  4. Dry potatoes on the ground for 2-3 hours after harvesting (if weather is fine) so skin will harden before storage. Store potatoes in a cool, dark place. Ideal storing temperature is between 3-5º C (35-40º F).

Planting Depth: 8-12 cm or 3-5"

Plantling Spacing: 30-40 cm or 12-16"
