yrs ago (not saying how many...LOL) when i had my first garden i remember planting potatos from the normal bought ones you use for out of the bag.

is there any problem is using normal potatos? i was looking at using roosters pacifically for next yr.

wont be lots as i only have the patio grow bags to grow them in..

thanks.

They will grow but you will probably have increased disease susceptibility, better to use certified seed potatoes or save some seed from your own crop, that way you know what your getting. Best of luck Very Happy

This year I sowed Red Duke of York (poor), Sharpes Express (very good), Caitriona (brilliant) Cara and Lady Balfour (not dug yet). Amongst that I sowed a row of Roosters from last year from a local fruit'n'Veg shop - they have been decent to be honest.
