What Seed Potatoes do i get?

Posted: 23/03/2015 at 15:17

I'm growing:

1st earlies Rocket that David recommended to me rather than my usual Pentland Javelin and also Vales Emerald which I enjoyed last year.

2nd earlies are Charlotte. 

Main crop, which I haven't bothered with before are Anya growing them because they are supposed to be waxy and store well. 

I'm tempted to try a few main crop Pink fir that I know Runnybeak grows and enjoys. They look a bit  but supposed to taste lovely.

Mine are all now planted in spud bags and will stay in old GH until I'm sure we won't have a hard frost. 

David I think it was you who posted last year about how many weeks from planting to harvesting  If you have time would you do it again it might help 1st time growers.
