Just bought some 'first early' seed potatoes, how long do they take to chit before putting them out into the 'veg patch'



3 to 4 weeks - which is fine too soon to plant right now :)

Moon growers advice is quite right, set your potatoes up on end with eyes uppermost, keep them in a frost free place with plenty of light, damp over now and again. Get your plot ready, if you have a frost free plot you may be able to plant in the 2nd. week of March, but you must wait until the ground warms up.
