No, I though not.
Read Peter Cundall's excellent advice on growing these delicious spuds.
Growing spuds is easy, cost-effective and very satisfying.
A couple of years ago I grew around 60kg of potatoes - mostly dutch cream, kipfler, king Edward and nicola.
It's pretty much plant, water, set and forget with just the occasional adding of soil as the tubers grow and expand.
The results were sensational.
Do use certified seeds from a respected supplier such as Diggers.
So if you have a spare sq m or so of lawn, live dangerously and plants some potatoes. I guarantee you'll love the results.
