Home Guard potatoes were first introduced during the Second World War due to their consistent high yields, great taste and high resistance to scab and spraing. They are a good all rounder as they can be used for boiling, baking and roasting to name a few! Home Guard potatoes are oval, have shallow eyes, with white skins and flesh.

First early seed potatoes have the shortest maturing time from as little as 60 – 110 days. These are often enjoyed as new potatoes because of their thin skins and most varieties are best eaten as soon as they are harvested.

Our 2kg packs contain between 20 to 25 tubers graded 35 to 60 mm.

Here is an idea for the planting and harvesting times for our seed potato varieties;

See the tabs above or click these links for information on: Delivery and Advice.

Brand:  Brookside Nursery
Eating Texture:  Waxy
Scab Resistance Rating:  Good
Culinary Uses:  Boiling - Baking - Chipping - Roasting

When you receive your seed potatoes, if they are not ready for planting (follow the planting table displayed in each variety) make sure you store these in a cool, dry place, with no direct sunlight, until it is time to plant.

It’s good practice, especially with First earlies and maincrop, to ‘chit’ the seed potatoes before planting out. A few empty egg boxes are the perfect way to do this. Stand them rose end up where the most dents in the skin are and pop them in a frost-free place with direct sunlight to allow the shoots to start growing. When these reach about 3cm (1ins) these are ready to plant. Find the strongest chits on the potato – around three or four - and rub the rest off before planting. 

For more growing information please see our How To Grow Potatoes Guide

Our seed potatoes are available for dispatch during the months of March and April . If you have also ordered plug plants for dispatch in March or April, we will send your seed potatoes during the same week. Smaller orders are dispatched via Royal Mail 24 , larger orders via Parcelforce 24
