When I plant my potatoes how far apart should they be the label is not too clear and can I pant something like spring onions between the rows.



Hi Steve

First Earlies, Second Earlies and Salad varieties:
12in/30cm apart and 4in/10cm deep in rows 18in/45 cm apart.
Maincrop varieties:
15in/40cm apart and 4in/10cm deep in rows 24in/60 cm apart.

You can't plant anything between the rows as you will be ridging/earthing up the potatoes as the tops appear to encourage more potato tubers to form.
