First Earlies Seed Potatoes can be planted from January to March. Planting potatoes this early means you will be harvesting from May to July, but beware of frost as this will damage the young plants.
If you don’t have a lot of space in your garden for Seed Potatoes then you should concentrate on the First Earlies Seed Potatoes types because they can be planted closer together (30–40 cm apart in rows that are approx 40–50 cm apart) and are less likely to suffer from blight and other disease.
First Earlies Seed Potatoes are ready 15–16 weeks after planting.
