Got these from waitrose ages ago and they started chitting at the same time as the other potatoes I was purposely trying to chit…so, I thought I’d give them a go too.
I think they are Edzell Blue, but I’m not 100% sure – I remember from the packet that they were heirloom and scottish so this is my closest guess. If anyone has any other ideas, let me know! (In the photos: they are the blue ones towards the back)
Planted 4 in a potato bag with some fresh worm compost and newspaper shredding.
