When is the best time to plant Potatoes in Brisbane please, how long do they take to produce? and how deep do you need to plant them please, do they need constant watering? Thanking you in anticipation, Betty

Where can I buy Idaho seeds, all we get are fancy yellow fleshed spuds here in supermarkets and they are VERY inferior to Idahos. I grew up with Idahos and I would dearly love to get hold of some seeds to grow them. I live west of the Devide in southern NSW where it is very hot in summer. Thanks in anticipation. Jim.
