Second early potatoes to grow

Discover some of the best second early potatoes to grow, on the veg plot or in a pot.

Second early potatoes are harvested from mid-July, a couple of weeks after first earlies. Many of them are good ‘salad potatoes’, as they don’t disintegrate on cooking and work well in hot or cold salads. But some are good all-rounders, too, suitable for baking, mashing, frying and roasting.
