Is it too late to plant potatoes in May?

is it too late to plant potatoes

Early potatoes need around 100 days, and main crops need about 120 days and so planting in May and June will give a great harvest in the late summer. You can plant potatoes in June. The storage conditions we have ensure top quality – the tubers will not need to be chitted as the ground will be warm enough to start the growing procedure off. Just watch out though, potatoes planted later in the spring will be more susceptible to blight in later summer.

We are delighted that Botanic Garden, University of Dundee planted some of our Violetta and other varieties of our potatoes in May to show that it is not too late to plant!
