are you saying that it's 10 spuds for £1? Because let's be honest, Aldi 5kg of Potatoes for 89p quite often and there's more than 10 potatoes in there. Granted, you haven't grown 'em yourself....

Or are you saying that it's 10 packs of seeds?

10 seed potatoes.

Not sure if you are saying you might as well buy normal potatoes to plant, or if you're joking, but most seed potatoes are grown in special farms that harbour no diseases that can spread into soil in your garden. Eating potatoes are not, however, and if you use them to plant you run the risk of infecting your soil. In your own garden this may be OK, but if you have an allotment your fellow growers may not approve of you using normal potatoes to plant, as any potential diseases could easily spread to their plots.

This being said, not sure whether they will be 'proper' seed potatoes as above if they're only a quid, they're usually about 3 or 4 times the price for 10 (I would still use them in my garden though).

whats the point, the listing is for people who know what they are.... If you need to read about gardening its not the place. You will notice that I put a smiley on the end of the answer as it was meant to be lighthearted, obviously wasted on you... just vote cold and move on...:p

I have bought seeds etc before from there and they have all been good, but these are proper seed potatoes and well worth a go. Dont forget you can split them to double up if you are happy to take a bit of a chance..:thumbsup:

If you were more clear then people would not waste their time trying to find out!


These first early Pentland Javelin seed potatoes have white, waxy flesh and a creamy texture making them an ideal potato for boiling or in salads. These are slightly later than other first earlies, but grow well in all soil types and have good all-round disease resistance, especially golden eelworm.
Earlies are less likely to encounter pest problems as they are lifted so much earlier in the year. These can be planted in the south (of the UK) mid March; further north by late March / early April.The actual time will depend on weather conditions. First early potatoes should be planted in rows allowing about 30cm between tubers, and 60cm between rows.

Hows that, if you send me your address I pop round and dig them in for you....

.............why not tend to them, harvest them, wash and peel them and deep fry them into lovely chippy goodness for him/her as well?


cut out the middleman.

yeah but doing that you would have one big plate... by sticking them in the ground for a few months you will have a big plateful every night for weeks ........ MMMMMmmmm :thumbsup:

Thanks I went into poundland yesterday, didn't see these was thinking about planting some pots this year.


Might give it a go !
#17
Had these before and they were great. I picked some more up yesterday - great bargain.
Well done op for spreading the word:thumbsup:

How many times have you seen normal potatoes for sale '10 for a quid'?!?!

I'm not a gardener for reasons of cba, and as for the price potatoes I can quite happily buy them from the supermarket for the rest of my life.

However, I did go to school to learn about seeds, germination and pollination and so should have you!

I suppose with an attitude like that you're still waiting to sow your seed........:giggle:

LOL Could you pop round to my allotment and dig em in for me please, prob not too far from you? :p

bought some last year and will def be heading down there for some soon, thanks
#20
Thank you, nothing like going rooting in the ground for some proper tasting spuds.
Heat added.
#21
I think i will buy a few for my Dads allotment at that price. Thanks:thumbsup:
#22
These posts remind me of the egg argument in Gulliver's Travels. Didn't realise the humble spud was such a mystery
#23
Lovely find, will try and grow these in a bag of compost in my flat....should be fun!:whistling:
#24
Yep I've grown this variety before and for each spud you can expect around 4-5lb spuds if mine were anything to go by! If they grow like that, you've paid £1 for 50lb spuds. Hot! Great deal thanks

Poundland do some spud bags, they were two for a £1. Not seen them this year yet but check out if you go in there...

By the way for those that may not understand, these are plastic cloth bags that you first put soil in and then plant your seed potatoes in (these are explained earlier) keep them watered and in a few months you can empty them and believe it or not a few spuds have become a bagful....:-D
#26
Got a bag of each of the varieties mentioned in this thread at Meadowhall, had loads left
#27
I'd love to grow my own spuds as I remember my dad doing this and that they were very tasty . All the effort put into growing them yourself probably didn't harm the taste . Alas my garden's too small and the soil quality is next to nil so I'd be paying out for compost , topsoil and all the rest too so my bargain wouldn't be a bargain for long . Heat and rep to the OP though as for those who have the facilities to make use of these will be glad of the price and hopefully you'll have encouraged some non-gardeners to give it a go too

Freckles - you can grown them in Bags......I personally use some of the Potato grow sacks (about 40 litres) and also 70 litre compost bags turned inside out......you start with about 6 inches of compost in the bottom put then spuds in the cover then keep adding soil as the plants grow up until you get to the top of the sack.

Have a google about growing your own....and they do taste better then shop bought....

Thanks Matt , might take a look . Was watching a youtube thingy a while back on this American survivalist showing people how to grow their own potatoes starting with seed potatoes they've allowed to go to seed themselves . Wasn't aware that there were varieties specifically grown in controlled environments to ward of disease etc . I like the idea of doing it but in truth I'm probably too lazy and hardly have the time to cook the ones I buy let alone grow them and dig them up beforehand . Mind you the kids would probably enjoy helping out with the mucky stuff lol . Rep added to you for your suggestion though

Cheers OP, we are due to take possession of a 260m2 allotment in February and this is one of the varieties recommended for novice gardeners. Thanks.

Might just be worth pointing out a post of mine from yesterday if you have a Wyevale near you http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/582428/all-new-season-vegetable-and-flower. It got a bit buried in all the posts for TV's and the like - can't believe there aren't any gardeners on here:thumbsup:
