We also hold back some Duke of York seed for Summer planting by keeping them refrigerated to prevent sprouting. This seed can be planted in mid Summer for harvest from October onwards. If you have a well drained garden or polytunnel potatoes can be left in the ground for a Christmas harvest.

A fine potato, was worried at first that they were in bad nick as they had started sprouting a few shoots but the lads at quickcrop said it was nothing to worry about. Aside from that they arrived swiftly two days after I ordered them and was surprised by the catalogue and the free jellies too. A great idea and there are some things I hope to pick up in the catalogue in teh near future.

I was hoping to order these for planting in a raised bed. When would be the best time to plant. Have I missed the window!

Hi Nicola Not at all. The perfect time for planting potatoes in the UK and Ireland is late February and the month of March so you are just about right now Regards Niall Quickcrop

We had great results with Duke of York (first earlies) and also Nicola (second earlies) in 2018 from Quickcrop in raised beds. Easy to grow, great crop and delicious. We did try to hold back some Duke of York for Summer planting / October harvets by ke

Hi Eimear Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. It is very difficult to store potatoes as they need to be kept between 3 and 5 degrees to stop them chitting. Thats why we leave it to the potato agents as they seem to be able to manage it without storing them to low a temperature that affects the quality. Niall Quickcrop

my first early Duke of Yorks were coming in well but second early Nicola are about 20cm higher and flowering but Duke of York not flowering yet, in same raised bed. Is this normal? Also, with the wind over the last 24 hours, all the potatoes have fallen over, not many actually broken. Will this damage the spudsir affect yield or will they cope? Thanks very much
Answered by Niall

Hi Eimear The different varieties will come on at different times and Nicola are always very early so nothing to worry about there. Once the stems are not broken the plants will recover over the coming days and will even continue to grow on their sides so no worries there either. Just nature at its best Regards Niall Quickcrop
