Seed potatoes have landed instore!

Kings Plant Barn Takapuna

We’ve got plenty of varieties to choose from – from the fast-growing Rocket variety, to high-yield Anuschka, gorgeous Red Fantasy and good old Agria

Here’s a tip from our Plant Doctors… To give your tatties a head-start, let them sprout for about a month before you plant them. This will help them grow faster once they’re in the ground.

And, for bigger, healthier spuds, make sure you water your crop often and feed with a good fertiliser
