Garrett's Red Potato Care Instructions
If sowing directly, sow at a depth of approx. 5.85 inches (15.0 cm) and aim for a distance of at least 11.7 inches (30.0 cm) between Potato plants.
Ensure you have enough space in your garden for this plant - Potato 'Red' is known for growing to a height of approximately 1.20 metres (that's 3.90 feet in imperial).
Your garden has full sun light - try to position in a partial sun location instead.
Remember to water moderately.
A soil ph of between 5.0 and 6.0 is ideal for Potato 'Red' as it does best in acidic soil so test your soil acidity often.
Potato 'Red' tends to be susceptible to Early Blight so keep a note of any developing symptoms.
