Salad Type Seed Potatoes

All good salads benefit from a salad potato - boiled and smothered in butter or served as a delicious potato salad with lashings of mayonnaise and snipped chives. Potatoes are at their best when they are dug up and cooked within the space of a few hours, so grow them yourself and give it a go!

Salad type seed potatoes are normally second earlies; they need to be planted between March and early May, at a depth of 10cm, with 30 to 40cm between each potato. There needs to be at least 70 to 75cm left between each row to give the salad type seed potato plants enough room to grow!

Open flowers (if present) will indicate when the first tubers are present. This should be within 9 to 12 weeks after planting. The potatoes should then be left for 2 to 3 weeks to allow the skin to harden so that they are able to store better.

See our potato growing guide for advice on how to plant and grow your salad type seed potatoes.
