Product Details

Product Details

  • Botanical Name: Butterfly & Hummingbird Garden
  • Height: 20 inches
  • Spacing: 10"
  • Depth: 3 to 5 inches 30 to 36 inches between rows
  • Spread: 18-24 inches
  • Light Required: part sun to full sun
  • Yield: Heavy yields, drought resistant. Since a single plant will likely produce up to 2-4 pounds, the yield from a 10' row could be anywhere from 25-35 pounds.
  • Size: 2 Lb Whole Potatoes
  • Fruit: White flesh and buff skin; flat to round
  • Zone: 3-10
  • Soil Requirements: Fertile, well-drained sandy loam. pH 4.85-5.4. Will grow on higher pH sometimes become scabby
  • Seed Count: 2 lbs. of seed potatoes will make approximately 10 - 15 potato sets when cut.
  • Comments: Fertilize at planting time. Mound soil over row as plants emerge to protect tubers from turning green in sun. Can be stored at 40-50 degrees F(cooler temps turn starch to sugar and warmer temps may cause them to sprout). *SPRINKLE A TABLESPOON OF 10-10-10 FERTILIZER IN THE SPACE BETWEEN EACH POTATO PIECE. DO NOT APPLY THE FERTILZER DIRECTLY TO THE POTATOES AS IT CAN BURN THE TUBERS. AFTER PLANTS ARE 8-10 inches TALL, USE A HOE AND PILE SEVERAL INCHES OF SOIL UP AROUND THE STEMS; THIS IS CALLED HILLING. THIS PREVENTS EXPOSURE TO THE SUN WHICH CASUSES TUBERS TO BECOME GREEN AND INEDIBLE.
