Starting early potatoes in this cold weather

April 1st, 2013 · No Comments

Starting early potatoes in cold weather or a cold start to the season, after placing the potatoes in egg boxes so they stand up and keeping them in a dark frost free area for a few days until they start to chit. They can be planted out into containers or into the soil. If the weather is cold traditionally you would cover the rows with straw but it is now better to cover the rows with black plastic after planting until the risk of frost has passed and the soil has warmed up. The black plastic sheeting is idea because the colour collects the sun’s heat and so warms the soil.
