    They vary through the seasons. Most companies put the actual variety on the packet these days.

    Which potatoes did you want , Morrison sell all the different types at different times of the year, you plant different types at different times of the year.

    Hvae a look through this website, lots of good info and the seed potatoes are a reasonable price, you can get kits which include the grow bag as well.

    Kizzycat, can you share with a friend? Local garden centres may sell them loose as well. 
  • i have now decided against planting the potatoes for now, maybe next year, For now, i'll be concentrating my efforts on the strawberries and blackcurrant plants i have

    You could always buy your 'regular' Morrisons potatoes and save one or two to plant.
    My daughter did this and has lovely spuds!
