My seed potatoes (bought online) arrived at the end of January but two days later I got rushed into hospital
I am now well enough to do something with them, but having opened the box I find most of them now have long whiteish shoots.
So for chitting, should I leave these? Break them off? Or is the whole lot now wasted?
Wishing you well with your recovery Cathy. I always find gardening therapeutic. I'm no expert with potatoes but I should imagine they will do more in the ground than in the bin. Monty only planted his last week on gardeners world. He recommended leaving on only 1 'eye' and to rub the rest off though. Hope your recovered soon ?
Thank you. I'd missed Monty.
I will put them on a window sill until I am fit enough to plant them out. If I only end up with a small number of potatoes it has got to be better than binning them!
