Believe it or not Shaun, they contain the seeds of the potato - not seed potato - the seeds of the potato.

Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

My main crop potatoes are chitting well with about 6-8 sprouts a piece.  Question is, should I rub off some of the sprouts before planting or leave them all on?

Thanks for any advice, Carol.
