Growing Potatoes for Christmas Dinner

As we enjoy the summer we must give some time to think about Winter and the crops we’d like to enjoy during the colder months.

For new potatoes in December and especially Christmas Day, August is the traditional month for planting.

Sean plants the variety Charlotte, putting two seed potatoes per 30ltr pot. Pots have the advantage of being mobile so when the frosts start to descend on the garden they can be moved into the greenhouse to protect the crop.
