Whether you like your spuds boiled, mashed, buttered or roasted, this trio of second-early varieties covers all bases. It includes three popular and reliable varieties which are equally useful eaten hot as a side dish or cold in salads. Ready to harvest from about mid-July, second earlies are less susceptible to potato blight and lovely eaten fresh or leave them in the ground for a few weeks to extend the harvest period.

Potato Summer Trio contains 1kg each of the following varieties:

  • Potato ‘Nicola’ (1kg) - produces good yields of uniform, oval tubers with smooth, white skins and shallow eyes. The waxy yellow flesh makes this variety ideal for boiling and eating hot or cold as a salad potato. Potato ‘Nicola’ shows good resistance to eel worm and potato scab and has good storage potential. Height and spread: 60cm (24").
  • Potato ‘Charlotte’ (1kg) - A very popular second early salad variety producing pear shaped, yellow skinned, waxy tubers and creamy yellow flesh of first class flavour, eaten either hot or cold. Potato 'Charlotte' holds an RHS AGM and is frequently found in the supermarket. Height and spread: 60cm (24").
  • Potato ‘Maris Peer’ (1kg) - Favoured by restaurants and gardeners alike. The firm creamy yellow fleshed tubers of Potato 'Maris Peer' retain their colour and have a superb flavour but won't disintegrate on cooking. This outstanding second early variety also boasts the most attractive, slightly scented purple flowers. Height and spread: 60cm (24").

 

Growing Information

Second cropping potatoes do not require 'chitting' and should be planted as soon as they are received. When planting late potatoes in bags, fill an 8 litre potato bag to just below the top of the bag with good quality compost mixed with some well rotted manure. Carefully plunge a single potato tuber into the compost with the shoots pointing upwards at a depth of 12cm (5") from the soil surface. Place the bags in a sunny position and water regularly to keep the compost moist.


When growing second cropping potatoes in the ground avoid planting in soil where potatoes have grown for two years in succession as this will increase the risk of disease. Prepare the planting area in a sheltered position in full sun on moist well drained soil. Dig in plenty of well rotted manure. Plant potatoes in rows at spacing of 45cm (18"). Rows should be set out 75cm (2’, 6") apart. Place the seed potatoes into 10cm (4") deep trenches and backfill the soil to refill the trenches. If risk of frost threatens, protect emerging shoots by drawing some soil over the top of them.

Live Plants

Suttons strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.

Non Standard Deliveries

Unfortunately like many companies in our industry we are currently only able to supply orders to UK based customers, excluding those in Northern Ireland. We are committed to finding a way that we can resume or normal services again as soon as possible. Please accept our apologies for any inconvience caused.
