Don’t know the difference between first earlies and maincrop, then look no further we can help you choose the perfect potatoes for you.   The terms first earlies,second earliesand maincrop potatoes refer to how long it will be before you can harvest the potatoes.  As a guide if you planted in mid march, first earlies would be ready to harvest within 10-12 weeks, second earlies would be ready to harvest within 12-14 weeks and maincrops within 15-20 weeks.  

Take a look at our truly special selection of extra-ordinarypotatoes if you are looking for something a little bit different.
Why not try the Pink Fir Apple potato -  the Winner of the RHS Award of Garden Merit.  A lovely heritage variety of potato with long knobbly tubers that are perfect for eating as chunky chips or in their skins.

Still unable to decide which pack of potatoes to choose – why not try our special Taster Pack .  This pack is perfect for those of you wanting potatoes throughout the summer.   Our taster pack contains a mix of  first and second earlies and maincrop potatoes  – fantastic value and a great way to try 4 fantastic varieties in a pack PLUS 4 patio planters all for just £15.99!    This taster pack comes with a recommendation from Sherie Plumb.  Sherie won the World Potato Championship with potatoes that included these four varieties at the Dundee Flower Show this year. 

Our Potato Planters are perfect for small gardens, patios and balconies. The planters are made of woven polypropylene and will each hold 3 seed potatoes. They can easily be moved with their handles and flat, ventilated base.

    Dear Anthony,

    Many thanks for your query.

    Unfortunately, we do not ship any of our products to addresses outside of the UK or the Channel Islands at present. Therefore, I’m sorry to say that we can’t help you on this occasion. We are always looking at ways to extend and improve our services, so this may be something we can offer in the future.

    Best regards,

    Jersey Gardener

    I have not been very successful with my potatoes this year. Someone has told me that it is because I planted them in the same site as I used last yeaar and that potatoes should not be planted in the same ground every year. Could you tell me if this is correct please?

    Hi Donald,

    Thank you for your comment. You’re correct, you should really leave potatoes between 2-3 seasons before planting them in the same ground. If you don’t have the space grow bags or containers are a great alternative place to plant potatoes – good luck for next season!
