With Spring around the corner, why not get a head-start on your new season potatoes?

Growing potatoes is an easy and rewarding way to get into veg gardening and doesn't take up a lot of room.

You'll need to 'chit' them first as this extends the growing period and leads to higher yields:

Place your potatoes in an empty egg box with the end that has the most eyes or buds uppermost.

Keep these in a cool, frost-free place with moderate light, such as an unheated room and avoid direct sunlight.

Sprouts will form within a few weeks and after about six weeks, shoots should be 5cm (2in) long and dark coloured.

Choose about four strong shoots and rub off the weaker shoots for early potatoes. There is no need to thin shoots for later crops

Plant up in mid-to late March in the ground or in a grow-sac and remember to 'earth up' regularly to increase your yields.

By growing early, mid and late season varieties you can enjoy fresh potatoes throughout the year!

The smooth rosettes of succulents enhance any desk or table, making an ideal feature piece. They're a great way to green up your living space, especially if you don't have access to garden.

These chic plants require minimal maintenance - an occasional water and a feed in the spring to keep them looking their best.

Available in a variety of shapes, our favourites are the flat rosettes of Echeveria and the upright architectural form of Aloe Vera, which incidentally, also make an ideal plant to improve air quality.

With lots of succulents available at our centres, you'll be spoilt for choice! 🌵🌵🌵

With their alien appearance, our #PlantFriday Carnivorous Plants make a quirky gift and are a great way to introduce children into gardening.

Being ideal for a bright conservatory or a sunny windowsill where flies are present, both Pitcher Plants and Venus Flytraps also offer something unusual for the houseplant collector. Whilst Venus Flytraps feed mainly on insects, Pitcher Plants have an expanded diet that includes insects, spiders, harvestmen, mites and molluscs.

These plants have evolved in boggy areas that are naturally low in nitrogen. It is important to water with rainwater as tap water is too harsh for them and not to feed plants with liquid plant food, cat food, food scraps etc – though dead flies are fine, providing they are “fresh”.

It is also important not to tease Venus Flytraps into triggering the closing response as this will cause the plant stress - each trap can only be used two or three times for catching insects, before it dies naturally and is replaced.
