Pre Pack 9 Potato Desiree
This popular variety is very versatile in cooking and tastes especially good when roasted or baked. To have potatoes for Christmas day, you’ll need to get them planted in August. The method of growing is exactly the same as for summer potatoes: place them in some soil at least 10cm (4inches) deep and add more soil on top of the plants, known as ‘earthing up’, as the top growth progresses. If you decide to grow in containers or bags then I recommend that you use a good compost formulated for vegetables.
Potatoes take 12 weeks until they are ready to be harvested. If growing in a frost free environment, they can be left in situ once the foliage has turned yellow, died back and removed. Make sure the soil is allowed to dry out completely whilst you wait to use them. 9 Tubers
