Hi,

I bought a bag of Home guard seed potatoes a few weeks ago, and kept them in my shed...I went to plant them on wednesday and notice a few of them had mould on them, some had sprouted and there wasa purpley fur on them.

Can i still plant them? or do you think they have gone?
Thanks.
Loo

I would carefully wash them with warm soapy water. If you had them in the dark the chits or sprouts are useless, you can take them off. If any part is rotting, just cut it away. Put them in a cool light place for a week or two (there is still plenty of time Smile) to dry off. Planting main crop in April is fine.
