Let The Chitting Begin

Today I managed to get a chance to prepare my seed potatoes for chitting.
I have around 100 varieties that I will grow using my simple polypot system.

I like to keep things organised so I put them all in trays and seperate them with cardboard that has the variety name written on.

I think my favourites are the NVS Amour and the Pink Duke of York look tremendous.

The secret to chitting is to remove the Rose eyes from the potato and leave the side shoots to grow.
