How to Chit Seed Potatoes

  • Place the seed  in an egg tray.
    The scar-side (point where the tuber was attached to parent plant) down, with rose uppermost.

  • The majority of eyes (buds) will be around the rose, and so pointing upwards.
  • Place the tray is on a north-facing, light, frost free window sill.
  • The chits (shoots) need to grow slowly.
  • The light keeps the shoots short, fat and green.
  • 4 degrees Celsius is ideal, but the temperature should not go above 10 degrees, neither should it reach freezing.
