Growing and caring for potatoes
The botanical name for potato is Solanum tuberosum and it can tolerate harsher conditions than most other plants. They also tolerate a range of different soils provided they have organic matter. After planting the potatoes, you should mound up the soil over the different tubers. If you live in an area that receives frost, plant potatoes from August - December. In areas without frost, planting of potatoes can begin as early as June.

Potatoes should receive regular watering. They grow in five different stages: sprouting; spreading leaves; tuber formation/flowering – cannot occur if temperature is above 27°C; bulking up of tubers and maturation.


Age, exposure to light, and damage to the potato can increase the presence of glycoalkaloids which is poisonous to humans and animals. If the potato tuber is green, do not eat it. Potatoes should be stored in a dry well-ventilated and cool place. The lowest temperature a plant can tolerate is 0°C.
