Potatoes already chitting
I just opened a box of seed potatoes, intending to chit the first earlies (Swift), for planting in a few weeks in the polytunnel. The second earlies (Charlotte), have also started, but not as much. I don’t want the shoots to be really long because they’re really easy to snap-off then. Would you leave them in the light as they’re presumably not going to stop growing now they’ve started? Would it be best to plant them earlier than planned with more protection or wait and risk long shoots? Also could I have prevented this? They were in their cardboard delivery box in the pantry, which is like a fridge.
These pictures are all the same, sorry. It took ages to upload with what we laughingly call our broadband connection, and I hadn’t realised that the last few attempts had worked. Can’t remove any of them.
