halhurst's Tater Joe's Russet Care Instructions

Try for a seed spacing of at approx. 11.7 inches (30.0 cm) and sow at a depth of around 5.85 inches (15.0 cm) if planning to sow direct.

Ensure you have enough space in your garden for this plant - Potato 'Russet' is known for growing to a height of approximately 1.20 metres (that's 3.90 feet in imperial).

Your garden has partial sun light which is ideal for Potato 'Russet'.

Remember to water moderately.

Try to keep the ph of your soil between the range of 5.0 and 6.0 as Potato 'Russet' likes to be in acidic soil.
