Which spud for boxes?
« on: November 01, 2017, 10:57 »

If you had only enough room for only ten spuds (in boxes or pots), which would they be?

10 of one or one each of your favourite spuds.

Many thanks in anticipation.

Cheers,  Tony. :)

I have very little space and grow in pots, and like waxy/salad potatoes, so I grow only Charlottes.  Very easy to lift the plant and harvest those that are ready, and leave the plant to grow on.  I may be tempted to do a 50/50 with another salad type this year.... 

I think it depends on whether you just want to try different varieties, or are growing them for the table Klefti.  :)
