    When to plant potato seeds?

    The early potato seeds must be planted around mid-March so you can harvest the first fresh potatoes in June. The second earlies, such as Nadine and Desiree, can be planted two weeks later. More northern UK areas should delay the planting by up to two to three weeks depending on weather and risk of frost. Potato seeds do not survive frost, so don't plant your potato seeds too early. Maincrop varieties, like King Edward, are generally planted in April. Besides planting potato seeds in the ground, You can pre-germinate potatoes if you want to enjoy potatoes quicker. Potatoes will grow faster after planting. Place the seed potatoes for a few weeks, starting in January, in a light place (but no direct sunlight) at a temperature around 10 degrees. This way, short, thick and healthy shoots will form and will grow faster when you plant them in soil.
