Hi
I read somewhere that you can get potatoes ready to plant (no chatting) that will be ready for christmas. I cannot remember where i read it, what type of potato or the best supplier. All i can remember is that they have been cold stored so will be ready for christmas. Any suggestions on what I might have read!!!

It tends to be 'Charlotte' which people plant now, usually in pots, for late harvest/xmas. The important thing is that you need to be able to protect it once the frosts & cold set in. So you need to have a greenhouse, conservatory or similar to be able to move them into. I've seen them for sale in general garden centres near where I live (Sheffield), so I'm guessing most will have some in stock now.
