I am chitting potatoes but the roots have only grown a little tiny bit, not as long as I was told they should grow, (about half an inch). Does anyone know why this is and if I can still plant them?
Some people are happy when they just show, almost like little buds Maria. Longer shoots can get knocked off when you plant, so not necessary for them to get like that, but they will probably still be fine.. Yours sound just about right to me.
Thank you Gemma! They seem to grow much quicker in the dark, but I will plant the ones I have next week and see how they go.
fruggle23. Plant them now, don't worry if you accidently knock any white shoots off. They will be fine as long as you plant them about 8-10 " deep away from frosts.
Maria3. Mine only grew short green shoots this year as well. Don't know why but Iv planted them. They will be ok.
