List of all plant growing information
Not to NORFOLK ISLAND, NT, SA, TAS or WA
SORRY but due to quarantine restrictions between Australian States no plants at all can be ordered by residents of Norfolk Island, Tasmania and Western Australia. These restrictions are very important as they prevent the spread of plant pests and diseases. No potatoes, garlic, shallots, strawberries or tubestock can be sent to South Australia. No tubestock can be sent to Northern Territory.
Now available for planting: Ginger, Strawberry, Stevia and Sweet Potatoes.
Potatoes

Growing your own spuds is easier than you think with these unusual potato varieties. They are hardy and easy to grow, with a wonderful flavour whether eaten 'old' or 'new'. Each kilo pack contains between 10 - 18 tubers, depending on type, of certified virus-free (VICSPA) seed potatoes. Expect a yield of approximately ten times the amount you plant. In order to achieve your own year-round planting stock, save tubers from your harvest in a cool, dark, dry place and replant as suits your climate zone. We will automatically substitute a different variety when sold out, unless you indicate otherwise.

Important
Recommended planting time: Potatoes can be grown in many months of the year, depending on whether the garden receives frost, as potatoes are frost-tender. Potatoes need 60-90 days frost-free to be successfully harvested; potatoes harvested early as 'new' potatoes do not store well. In northern NSW and QLD one of the best planting times is March-April, as the soil is warm, growth is rapid and there are generally less pests. For frosty areas, potatoes can be planted in early spring, shortly before the last expected frost.

If space is limited and you would still like to grow your own spuds in a courtyard or on a balcony, then Planter Bags are a great idea. Check that the area is in full sun. Keep in mind that Planter Bags full of spuds are pretty heavy so a balcony would need to be capable of supporting the extra weight.
