• Chit It

    28th February 2012Timely AdviceStephanie Donaldson

    I always think that setting potatoes to chit is a bit like putting eggs in an incubator – they just need the right conditions to get them growing. Predictably the First Earlies have been the quickest to sprout and if this mild weather continues I will soon be putting them in the ground, but I will stick with tradition and plant my maincrop potatoes on Good Friday.
