Potato progress - Winter crops•
Posted on 23 July 2010
Are winter crops your thing? Hopefully, you are all enjoying your own home-grown potatoes from your Spring planting by now, and doesn't the taste make it all worthwhile?
But it ain't over til the fat lady sings (at Christmas) - Once you've emptied your Potato Patio Planters, keep them in mind, as you can very easily have another batch of fresh home-grown spuds ready for the Christmas table!
All you have to do is replant from mid-August to early September. Seed potatoes will be available from most garden centres and mail-order companies .
Alternatively, you could just keep back a few spuds from your summer crop and use them as your seed potatoes! Add a little straw/old leaves to the bottom of your planter - as this rots it will help to provide some warmth, protecting your winter potatoes from the cold. Then plant as normal.
