Garden Basics: Potatoes
A potato is a many-splendored thing, but you could be forgiven for thinking it was rather plain. That is of course unless you have visited the fantastic Love Potatoes website, from the potato council (no, really). The site has lots of useful information about the not-so-humble spud, including an excellent list of potato varieties and characteristics. Want amazing chips? Then King Edward, Maris Piper, Rooster, or Sante are your favourites. Enjoy a good jacket spud? Estma and Marfona are your best bet.
The site is jam packed with spud facts for you to digest, and there’s still time for you to get your second earlies in if you can dig fast enough – Get a move on, garden lovers, it’s spud-time!
