When best to plant potatoes in Turangi - still pretty cold down here at moment - do I wait until September or maybe later?
24 Aug 21 Tony (New Zealand - temperate climate)
the issues to consider are: Do you have chitted seed? When is last frost date? When does the psyllid bug become active (usually around December) Even if you plant now they will just sit until conditions are good. You can make earthed up rows and plant into that rather than in cold hard soil.
