My first attempt at growing potatoes this year! Got myself some seed potatoes from my local garden center just over a week ago (Duke of York and Golden Wonder), and they're currently chitting in my kitchen and have some several 1cm long shoots on each already.
I've read contrasting opinions on chitting, with some saying that it's unnecessary and they have more luck just planting them straight in the ground.
What are your views? Do you find that some varieties need chitting whilst others don't?
