Default Seed potato storage.


Hi,
I seem to have overdone the seed potato order last year.

I have planted all those I had the time and space available for, can
those I have left be stored in any way for2020?

Regards

AB

I doubt it. It might be possible if you could keep them in a
temperature and humidity controlled room, but not otherwise.

Got an allotment nearby? Maybe offer them there in exchange for some
other fruit or veg crop later.

No.

I'd just pass them on to other gardeners.

Thanks for the replies.

I planted most of them now, didn't have much time but I simply dug
holes in the "lawn" with an auger, dropped a seed spud in and covered.

There are no allotments, just farms nearby and I doubt that a few
potatoes would be of interest.

Some of last years crop that I planted in containers are sprouting
again, they were a bit small so I have doubts that they will come to
much. Might be enough to keep the slugs happy :-(
