A few years ago, we did a trial at Perch Hill of the best potatoes for growing in bags. This system works brilliantly, and means you won't have to use up precious space in the garden.

These seed potatoes can be planted in February-March for cropping in May and June, or in March-April for cropping right through the summer.

This collection includes full instructions for growing in bags, and tubers of:

  • 'Winston' – 1kg – excellent potato for baking, chips and mash
  • 'Ratte'- 1kg – delicious, nutty taste like chestnuts, firm and waxy
  • 'Harlequin'- 1kg – 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.
