0. H In 1829, the great writer, politician, agriculturalist and gardener William Cobbett wrote of potatoes, I never eat them myself, findings so many other things far preferable. Well, were all entitled to our personal views, and my opinion of potatoes is very much higher than Cobbetts. 1. Nowadays, potatoes are the in thing so far as health is concerned. In the 60s and 70s we were told to avoid them at all costs for fear of getting fat, but now, thank goodness, they have been re-invented by the dieticians as a source of fibre and vitamins. Sensible people, like you and me, have always eaten them because they taste so good. 2. Potatoes come in various shapes and sizes, growing at different speeds and maturing at different times in the summer. Maincrop potatoes take up a lot of room, but if your garden is small dont give them up just get an allotment. You wont regret it, especially when your envious neighbours see you returning proudly home, your wheelbarrow heaped with gleaming specimens. 3. Early potatoes are far more compact. Tastewise, theyre a different vegetable from the ones you buy in the shops, and a must for all gardens. If you havent a room for a vegetable plot, plant individual tubers in the flower border. Homgrown, fresh-dug earlies will more than reward your ingenuity. 4. If the idea of mixing potatoes and flowers sounds bizarre, you should bear in mind that potatoes make very attractive foliage plants. Theyre closely related to tomatoes, which when first introduced in Britain were thought to be poisonous and grown for decoration only. The fruits were called love apples!

Buy tubers in the early spring, choosing the smallest you can find, and put them in a cool place to develop shoots. Plant them in March with the maincrop varieties 50 cm apart and the earlies 40 cm apart. Give them a nice warm covering of soil 10 cm is about the right depth. 6. If you want to try some of the newer varieties see my guide to the best, below. Remember, though, that they vary in vigour, depending on locality, and my comments apply to the south of England. Many of these varieties are available in garden centres, but for the most modern ones you may have to buy by mail order. Whatever you do, buy carefully; the best seed potatoes are small and obviously ready to sprout. 7.
