How To Grow
Potatoes grow in a wide range of soils, the ideal being sandy with a high humus content. They require nitrogen so it is important to add manure and garden compost to the soil before planting. New shoots will appear in 2-3 weeks and require mounding to encourage formation of the new tubers. It also ensures they are not exposed to the sun. Straw mulch can be used to achieve this mounding and also to assist water retention. Lift potatoes when vines wilt and begin to die. Leave freshly dug tubers in the sun for a day to prevent bruising. Store spores in the dark in cool temperatures.
