The Q&A Archives: Fall Seed Potatoes

Question: Where do you recommend I find seed potatoes to plant in the fall? I have heard about looking for them in the supermarket and finding potatoes with "eye's" on them. I have also checked your catalog and was told they not sold after July. Thank you.

Answer: It's true that potatoes can be planted all year long in some regions, but potatoes are living plants and need perfect storage conditions until planted in the ground. For that reason, many places do not carry them for more than a few months. In your gardening zone you can plant in September and October. An incredibly huge choice of seed potatoes are available from Ronnigers Seed Potatoes, PO Box 1838, Orting, WA 98360.
