Cutting Seed Potatoes


Staff member
Some people are under the impression you have to plant the whole potato, and that simply is not true. Take the potatoes you intend to plant, put them in a warm place. Old timers use to put potatoes under their bed to get them to sprout.

Once the potatoes have sprouted eyes, take a knife and cut a chunk of the potato off along with the eye.

Let the cutting dry for a few days, then plant.

Some people dip their cuttings in lyme, or in fireplace ashes.
