Potato Home Guard

Home Guard potatoes are well known for their early lifting ability. Skin colour is white with a white flesh.

Home Guard is an excellent first early potato which is ideal for boiling,baking, chipping and mashing.

They have a very good resistance to disease especially to all forms of scab and spraing. 

Potato's benefit from being chitted before planting in March-April. Store in a cool light spot before planting. Cultivate soils as deep as possible and add plenty of well rotted manure. Potatos are best grown in rows, so dig a trench 20cms deep and 10cms wide and plant the tubers in the bottom every 20cms.and cover over. As the potato's start to grow cover the emerging shoots with soil until a ridge of soil about 30cms high has been attained and then leave the foliage to grow above the ridge.

Tip: Keep well watered during the growing period.

Aspect: Full sun to semi shade.
