High yielding and drought resistant, Marfona is a Second Early Seed Potato that is particularly well-suited for jacket potatoes, but also good for boiling, baking, mashing, chips and roasting. 
  • High yielding
  • Second Early seeds cropping from July-September
  • Leave seeds arranged in an open tray in the light to chit before planting
  • Plant with shoots upwards from early to mid-April onwards once the soil has warmed, 10cm (4in) deep in a trench with a sprinkling of fertiliser or in bed dug over with well-rotted manure or garden compost
  • Leave 40-50cm (1ft 4in – 1ft 7in) between rows
  • Full sun
  • Avoid frost

As shoots appear from the seed potatoes, cover with a ridge of soil. Continue to cover shoots as they appear. By the end of the season, a ridge will have grown to approximately 15cm (6in).
