This Complete Second Cropping Potato Growing Kit means that anyone can now grow delicious, fresh potatoes. You don't even need a garden as a patio, balcony or courtyard will do! Just add compost and water and you'll soon be harvesting your first new potatoes. We have included three popular 'second cropping' varieties Charlotte, Maris Peer and Nicola, which are all second salad types with very good flavour Charlotte - One of the most popular salad potatoes in the UK, the instantly recognisable, oval-shaped tubers can grow much larger than other salad varieties and have a firm yellow waxy flesh. Maris Peer - Chosen for its superb flavour, they are best when boiled and maintain a firm texture that does not split. Nicola - Well-shaped, oval potatoes with creamy flesh that are perfect whether hot or cold - one of the tastiest new potatoes. These special seed potatoes have been held in cold store until now and will grow rapidly once planted - right up to the end July to give you ‘new’ potatoes through autumn and even up to Christmas. This is the perfect way to grow your own potatoes and what's even better is it requires no back-breaking digging whatsoever! Each one of these special kits includes 3 x 30 Litre Heavy Duty Pots, 3 varieties of Turbo Tubers (x 6 tubers of each) PLUS 1kg Of Organic Potato Fertiliser. This special technique has been used by professional growers for years, but now you can do the same at home!

Top Tips
- Note: Your seed potatoes will need chitting prior to planting. On receipt, stand them in an egg box in a cool, light room so they can begin chitting (shooting). Leave for 3-4 weeks, and short dark shoots (chits) will emerge. Take care not to damage these when handling or planting. Keep your potatoes well watered as they grow - dry conditions will result in a considerably reduced crop.

Care Guide
- Start with a little compost in the base of your container, about 6-7in (15-17cm). Place the tubers onto the compost and half fill the pot. Keep some horticultural fleece handy, should cold nights threaten.
- The green shoots will eventually poke up through the compost, and when they do, cover them with another layer of compost, water and feed. Keep on adding as the plants grow until you reach the top of the pot or bag.
- First and second earlies will grow quicker than maincrop potatoes which are in the pots for longer, so require more regular watering.
- In the ground, first earlies will take around 14 weeks to mature, second earlies around 16 weeks, but in warm containers you can knock a couple of weeks off that, particularly if you like to eat them small and tender.
- New potatoes are at their best eaten immediately, so pull out only what you want for one meal, leaving the rest to grow on.
