Growing Calendar for Belle de Fontenay Seed Potatoes
Delivery: Despatched from Early January
Put potato 'Belle de Fontenay' in your allotment to give you handsome harvests of a first-early beauty. A beautiful French first-early potato variety firm and waxy in texture. Perfect for Sunday lunches in late spring to early summer. So versatile- they’re perfect boiled, steamed and as a salad potato.
Having been trialled it was commented by an RHS expert panel that this variety improves on storage its already great flavour.
We suggest you grow Belle de Fontenay in bags if you are limited on space in your allotment. You can place your bags in a sunny spot on a patio or balcony and still expect good returns.
These first early seed potatoes donít seem very good. Odd sizes with some overly huge ones and some tiny ones, not many regular sized ones. None of them seem to be chitting very well. They have tiny black growths rather than good purple sprouts. The main crops are a good size and are chitting nicely though.
Terseness, and disinterested customer service staff. Poor quality seed potatoes. Will not order from Marshalls again
Excellent variety of first early
