POTATOES FOR CHRISTMAS

I have tried this a few years agowhen I started gerdening on my allotment. That time I planted the potatoes in the ground and as the weather got colder I proteced them with straw and in the end put some garden fleece over the rows.

Same method as I did the very first earlies and I keep all the pots in the back garden – when the weather gets very cold I can move the pots inside my cold greenhouse.
