Grow potatoes now ready for the festive season.
Throughout the year we like to highlight the gardening jobs for at that time through creating key displays. For this reason, you’ll currently find a stand dedicated to Christmas potatoes in our Garden Sundries department.
Nothing beats the taste of home-grown new potatoes with your turkey. Growing spuds is easy and rewarding, and if you plant now, you’ll have potatoes ready to lift during the festive season. By growing in a container, such as pots or bags, these tender vegetables will be protected from frost, as you can move them into a greenhouse or cover the leaves with fleece.
We recommend trying the following varieties with your Christmas dinner, Pentland Javelin, Charlotte, Maris Peer, Sharpe’s Express or Desiree.
