Video: How To Cut and Plant Potatoes


Staff member
Video talking about cutting seed potatoes, and then planting.

The one thing not talked about is fertilizer.

I would start with 13-13-13. Then around six weeks later side dress with 10-20-10.

Some people cut their seed potatoes a week, or several days, before planting, then dip the cuttings in lime or fireplace ashes. I have not noticed a difference between cutting early and cutting the day of the planting.
