A fine potato, was worried at first that they were in bad nick as they had started sprouting a few shoots but the lads at quickcrop said it was nothing to worry about. Aside from that they arrived swiftly two days after I ordered them and was surprised by the catalogue and the free jellies too. A great idea and there are some things I hope to pick up in the catalogue in teh near future.

Can I plant these in the raised beds that others have just come out from? Thanks
Answered by Andrew

Hi Phil. Good question. Unfortunately the answer is no. You will only encourage disease and the soil will be depleted of nutrients after Potatoes have just grown in the soil. You are best to put Potatoes in after Roots crops (carrots, parsnips etc) or Onions/ Garlic.
