messed up with potato seeds... what do i do now?

Recommended Posts

bonjour tout le monde...


a while agp i asled on this forum : "what do i do with spare potato seeds?"

i got loads of answers, thank you very much.


now, i am afraid i did not do well enough...

the spare seeds i had, i kept them in a dark place, in a box, but quite a warm place as well...

now the seeds have got sprouts that are long and white, which i heard before is not so good...


so: can i still use them?

i don't want to waste too much of my compost, as i want to keep it for something that's worth it...


anyway... will long white sprouts on potato seed still do?

How long is long? Mine started to sprout in the box whilst I was on holiday, so I put them in empty module trays on a shelf in my conservatory where they would get plenty of light, and now the shoots are turning a healthy green. I think they'll be OK, but they were only an inch or two long before I put them in the light. If yours are a lot longer, they may have exhausted themselves already, but it's worth a go - good luck!
