Seed Potatoes, Onions, Garlic and that shallot

We have an incredible range of seed potatoes ready for chiting and planting in spring. (We also have a great range of onions, mild, medium and robust garlic and of course that shallot!)

In fact we have 21 varieties of potato, so can be sure to find the right one for boiling, roasting or mashing with oodles of cream and butter.

To know how many seed potatoes to buy here is a handy guide that we use here at Avery’s Garden Centre:

Each seed potato produces around 10 potatoes.

So if you plant a row of 10 you get 100 potatoes.

If you plant 10 rows you get 1000!

Then if you loose 10% to slugs, you can simply take 10% off the total.

All you have to do now is work out how many potatoes you eat each week, and you can calculate how many seed potatoes you need to grow.

Remember earlies do not store that well, and so you only need enough of those to last from June/July when you dig them to September when you lift the main crop ones.
