Good Friday is the traditional day to plant your seed potatoes. Of course in years gone by this would only have been in the garden soil. These days many people enjoy growing their own potatoes in bags or even large pots.
And there is nothing, absolutely nothing like the taste of your home grown new potatoes. Plants some first early seed in the next few days, and you could be eating your own fresh new potatoes before the end of July. How tasty and satisfying would that be with some salad grown yourself and a nice piece of meat cooked on your barbecue?
At Fresh @ Burcot Garden Centre, we still have a number of seed potato varieties ready for you to buy and plant. The garden soil is warming up nicely now if you are growing your potatoes in the ground, but we also have potato growing bags, fertiliser and a selection of big pots too.
Go on give them a grow!
