'Chitting' Seed Potatoes

(This can be done to bring your potato crop harvest forward, however it is not essential)

  • Cover a tray with a thin layer of dry compost
  • Place tubers with eyes facing upwards
  • Keep in a light but not sunny frost free position
  • When 'chits' are approximately ½-1 in/25mm they are ready to be planted out
Planting & Caring for Potato Crops
  • Draw up earth around the green growth as it emerges to protect from frost
  • Earth-up and keep weed free as haulm (larger size stems) develop
  • Ensure that crop is adequately watered during dry spells with particular attention when tubers begin to form
