Directions for use
Directions for planting in garden beds:
- Buy your seed potatoes at least a month before planting to enable them to sprout. Remove them from the bag and place in trays in a dry, airy spot away from direct sunlight, until sprouts are approximately 20-40mm long.
- Make long furrows in the soil approximately 300mm apart for smaller varieties and 400mm apart for main crop and larger varieties.
- Place seed potatoes approximately 250mm apart in the furrows.
- Cover with up to 50mm of soil.
- Continue mounding your potatoes as shoots grow, until they are approximately 300mm tall. This protects them from wind and frost, prevents light reaching tubers and turning them green, and encourages tuber development.
Directions for planting in containers:
- If you are short on space you can grow your potatoes in containers, large plastic bags or a bucket - just make sure there are plenty of drainage holes.
- Place seed potatoes in Tui Vegetable Mix near the bottom of the container.
- As the sprouts grow, keep adding mix until it is up to the brim of the container.
Do not plant potatoes in the same place each year and avoid planting them where tomatoes have been planted the previous season, to reduce the risk of spreading disease.
