    Remove the seed potatoes from the bag as soon as you receive them and put them in an egg carton in a sunny window sill. The shoots will start to sprout and when they are around an inch long they will be ready to plant. Plant in a narrow trench of 12cm deep. Space the bulbs 37 cm, in rows 60 cm apart for maincrops. Apply a general-purpose fertiliser after planting.
