Potato Growing Guide
From earthy new potatoes and bite-sized salad varieties to fluffy bakers and roasters, the trusty humble potato remains the UK’s favourite vegetable. Not only versatile, cooked potatoes with skin are a good source of many vitamins and minerals, such as potassium and vitamin C. Potatoes are underground tubers that grow on the roots of a plant called Solanum tuberosum.
If you’re a potato aficionado, there are several exciting varieties you can try and grow at home, and luckily, they couldn’t be easier to grow! You don’t even need a vegetable garden or even much space – potatoes grow very well in bags placed on your balcony or even patio.
