Nearly everyone loves a great spud and why not?....... high in fiber, rich in vitamin B and C, packed with more protein and iron than any other vegetable, potatoes are a key ingredient to nearly everyone's diet, they are a mountain of fun to grow and it just got easier.

Certified, NZ Grown Seed Potatoes... nothing beats them!

Preparing your seed potatoes

  • You should aim to have brought your preferred seed potatoes up to 6 weeks before planting... this is to allow them to begin to sprout (called chitting)
  • Always use certified, virus free seed potatoes to ensure you get great results.
  • It's important not to plant out your Seed Potatoes until after the risk of frosts have ended (alternatively if you're super eager, the use of Frost cloth can do the trick )
  • Store your seed Potatoes in a nice dry area until they¬†produce shoots between 2 ‚Äď 4 cm long (storing in an egg container is our wee hack!)
