growing potatoes in pots. how do i store the spare seeds?

Recommended Posts

bonjour tout le monde!


i feel well excited today because i received my order of potato seed!!

(red duke of york, pink fir apple and Ezzle blue)


i do intend to do it properly this year, so any advice you have about growing spuds in pots would be greatly appreciated...


can i use home made compost for it??


anyway, my main question is: i have three large pots, and intend to plant three or four potato seeds per pots,

but then, how do i store the spare seeds?

how long are they going to keep?

see... i wouldn't like them to go to waste and have to pay again to get my next lot of seeds...


Thank you for any comment!!!

My current issue of "Kitchen Garden" suggests keeping some spare seed potatoes in the fridge and then planting them out later in the year for Christmas new spuds :)


You can also save potatoes from your crop (in the fridge, presumably, or a clamp - the bigger the seed potato, the better (apparently).
