'Chitting' Seed Potatoes

(this is done to bring forward the harvest date if required but is not essential)

  • Set out tubers on egg boxes or in wooden trays with the 'eyes' uppermost
  • Keep in a light, frost-free room 
  • 'Chits' or 'Shoots' will begin to grow
  • Chits or Shoots should be about ½-1 inches before planting
Planting Seed Potatoes
  • Plant first early chitted tubers 12 inches apart in rows
  • There should be approximately 24 inches between rows
  • Cover seed potatoes with compost or soil
Crop Care
  • When shoots emerge protect from frost by 'earthing-up' 
  • Earthing up will also protect tubers from light which turns them green
  • Water regularly with particular attention when tubers begin to form
  • Harvest early potatoes when flowers are fully open
