If you don’t have a lot of space in your garden for Seed Potatoes then you should concentrate on the First and Second 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.
Second Earlies Seed Potatoes are ready 15–16 weeks after planting.
