Growing Calendar for Carolus Seed Potatoes
Delivery: 5-7 Working Days
Enjoy the big crops of big potatoes from Carolus; a dependable variety which is not too wet in the flesh so makes great chips and wedges, not falling apart in the boiling or frying process.
In fact Carolus makes a great baked potato too with skins readily crisping while the insides become fluffy. All these ways of cooking Carolus are perfect at harvest time in September when the nights draw in earlier and you want something great-tasting, hearty and warm.
How to plant:
Prepare the soil by raking the area after sprinkling some pre-planting Potato Feed over the area a month or so before planting in March. Keep your seed potatoes in a dry, cool and light place over February so they create little stumpy stems (called chitting) which will grow better at planting time than seed potatoes left in a warm, dark place.
Try planting home-grown Carolus in Gro-Sacks. Plant one to five seed potatoes to every Gro-Sack in spring in multi-purpose compost for the perfect soil consistency and treat your potatoes with some Growmore for a great feed as the stems start to grow. Pile soil up half the height of your stems as your plants grow to keep the potatoes well-covered at all times.
