Potatoes in pots

Back to the storms - downpours and very windy, but still not especially cold. To try and get an early march on the weather I've planted up two large pots with 3 each of Sante potatoes. These are ones saved from last year and already sprouting in the cardboarded boxes where we store them in the garage.

I've put the pots in the big conservatory where it's dry and a little warmer than outside. Hopefully we'll have some nice new spuds for April or May.

In November I planted two big tubs up in the greenhouse. Nothing showing yet. Last year the conservatory potatoes came earlier than the greenhouse ones where they can get a touch of frost.
