Default Where to buy seed potatoes.

Hi all,

We are just North of Brisbane and would like to grow some potatoes. Does
anyone know of a supplier of seed potatoes or are we stuck with the
varieties in the local shops?
Can varieties such as King Edwards, Jersey Royals etc grow in this climate
and if so where would we get seed potatoes.

Mike

g'day mike,

you can buy regular varieties like 'sebago' and 'pontiacs' right now
from you local produce agency there is an agency at redcliffe ther
will be others in the caboolture area or in most areas, especially
where there are people with nag's.

as for those specific varieties you may have to shop around go to
local yuppie type markets like along the dayboro road near petrie
can't think of the place right now but it is in the grounds of the
local pub easy to find.

also research if those types will grow well here or what you may need
to do special.

but from me you need to be getting your tubers in the ground about
now.

Mike,
You could try the Diggers Club www.diggers.com.au they have a good range,
but generally only ship them in spring. Probably any on-line plant supplier
will also have some available.

I tend to buy new seed potatoes every 2 or 3 years and use more own the rest
of the time.
