- 'Winston' – excellent potato for baking, chips and mash
- 'Ratte' – delicious, nutty taste like chestnuts, firm and waxy
- 'Kestrel' – supremely tasty, waxy, mid-season potato
Home-grown potatoes are easy to grow and taste so much better. Grow your own salad and vegetables and you'll always have something for supper.
When the shoots first appear draw the earth from between the rows to cover them. This encourages underground shoots and more tubers. Add in lots of well rotted manure the previous autumn (not too fresh).
