Potatoes are crops which catch disease easily, and require deep soil and attention. They need to be kept almost fully covered with soil, which means they are often unsuitable for raised beds.
Planting And Harvesting
Potato Chits should be chitted in March to April on a warm, sunny windowsill, the planted when the ‘buds’ begin to develop. They should then be planted around 1/2 a foot deep, and as the stems and leaves emerge, they should be covered with soil continuously.
In June to September, they can be harvested. They should be dug up, taking care not to cut their skin or damage the bulb, so it can possibly be replanted if it is not fully ready.
