Second Early Seed Potatoes

Second Earlies are planted out from about February to March and are harvested from July to October. Again, this is dependant on weather conditions and is likely to vary slightly from season to season. Second Early potatoes should be planted in rows, allowing about 1½ft (45cm) between tubers and 2½ft (75cm) between rows.

Second Early Potatoes take approximately 13-14 weeks from planting to harvest. They are ideal for growing in tubs and potato planters.

Seed Potatoes are available to order from mid-December for delivery from mid-January onwards.

Second early potatoes, are basically a follow-on of the first early potato crops. Harvesting of the “new potato”, which is very popular in the UK, can be prolonged up to 2-4 weeks after the earlies have been lifted, filling the gap before the main crop is ready. Second early seed potatoes can be planted around mid-March to mid-April. The slightly higher temperatures will help them produce a higher yield than first earlies. They are also ready just in time for the popular summer salad days. Second early potatoes are firm and best served whole in salads, where they can served cold.

Like any new potato they don’t need to be peeled and can also be used in many other culinary dishes such as potato soup, herb roasted and many dishes, which has new potatoes as the main ingredient. They are easy to grow and need little attention other than watering and earthing up. As with first early potatoes, second earlies can be grown both in open beds and in large containers.
