A few weeks back I purchased some seed potatoes (Arran Pilot first earlies and Pink Fir Apple main crop). My intention was to do the traditional plant out on Good Friday, so I intended to start chitting in the second week of Feb.
In order to keep the seed dormant, I put them in a dark place. I noticed today that the Arran Pilot have started sprouting with numerous very thin spindly shoots, despite being in the dark. What do I do?
The only advice I have found online is to rub off the sprouts. Is this the best solution? Should I move them somewhere light? I also have read that you only want three chits at most, so do I start again or pick the best three and hope they beef themselves up?
Any help will be gratefully received!
