I attended the RHS Winter Plant and Potato Fair at the RHS Royal Horticultural Halls, Victoria, London. As a RHS Member, you get in free, so it’s a worthwhile bus journey to see lots of beautiful plants. Of course, there is the usual array of Growers and a good RHS stand, where I purchased some seed potatoes. More, I hear you cry but only a small handful, I reply.
At the short presentation, I learnt that the process of “chitting” enables the grower to save around two to three weeks , as the seed potato starts to grow out of the ground. So it’s good that they have started to flourish in the small greenhouse.
