Potatoes have arrived.

The kestrel potatoes have arrived from JBA Seed Potatoes, so I will have to put them into the greenhouse to chit.  The weather is still quite cold and I am wary about leaving them outside at the moment.

Potatoes really need protection from the frosts and, with the weather being so cold this year, I will be giving them the benefit of extra protection.  They will get a covering of bubble wrap when they go out. 


  1. Try and put them near a North facing window in a cool room just now and they will slowly chit. Once it warms up abit then by all means put them in the greenhouse.

  2. Thanks for the advice JBA. I regard you as the expert so I will follow what you say carefully.
