When the crop doesn’t have cultivations, we can cover part of it, with polyethylene green houses, even if small, to cultivate firstlings. We advise cultivating the the Irish potato outdoors, since it doesn't fear cold temperatures.We suggest to position the the Irish potato in a sunny spot at least a few hours a day.

Water Irish potatoTenere asciutto
We suggest watering the crop letting the water flow freely on the ground, avoiding wetting the foliage; this tip is useful to avoid some common fungal diseases from developing. Water sporadically, with 1-2 glasses of water , leaving the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when watering we suggest avoiding excesses, but to wet the substratum well. Let's act every 1-2 weeks .

Fertilize Irish potato
Let’s enrich the soil of the crop, with organic fertilizer or humus, already by the end of the winter, working the soil deeply with a shovel. After planting the young little plants, in the spring, let’s add granular slow release fertilizer.
