Potato Maris Peer Gro-Kit (Autumn Cropping)

  • Catalogue Code 1050-6687
  • Pack Contents: 1x Potato Gro-Kit

Get hold of an all-in-one potato Gro-Kit and grow your own potatoes, whether you have a garden, an allotment or just a paved outdoor area.

Each kit contains:

  • Three award-winning Gro-Sacks (H46.5cm x W30cm x D30cm)
  • 15 x potato tubers of salad-variety Maris Peer
  • One sachet of potato fertiliser

What you need to do

  • Half-fill Gro-Sack with compost and fertiliser. Plant tubers 10cm (4in) deep from June.
  • As plants grow add more compost and fertiliser to fill Gro-Sack.
  • Water regularly and harvest up to late autumn.

A salad-type potato variety with outstanding flavour. Produces large yields of smaller tubers that are perfect for steaming and boiling. Delicious served hot or cold.

Whether you choose to grow this autumn-cropping potato variety in open soil on the allotment or in a purpose-made Gro-Sack, you’ll get a bounty of potatoes in autumn that are perfect served hot or cold. The waxy and firm texture means your potatoes don’t break up on boiling or steaming.

Protect your potato plants from cold nights by covering them with horticultural fleece. If you are growing them in a Gro-Sack consider bringing them indoors so as long as they are not too heavy and returning them outdoors at daybreak.

As the stems of your potato plants develop earth up soil around the base of your potato plants using a digging spade weekly. This stops the edible tubers from greening-up and becoming poisonous.
