New Royals a go go...

New Royals a go go…

We were wandering around after a walk in St Catherine’s Wood this month and noticed a patch at the side of the road that had been ravaged for Royals. Sensibly the area was just out of reach of the road. It turns out that this small patch on the East of the Island was planted before Christmas and has benefitted from the particularly mild winter, and has grown very well. It is a good sample with a high number of potatoes per plant, which bodes well for the rest of the season. The heavy rain in early February did impact on our sequential planting programme, and ultimately means that we are unlikely to have quite so many potatoes ready to dig at the start of May, meaning that the lead in to the main promotion period may be slightly longer. All in all though, The Jersey Royal Company are fairly upbeat and hopeful of a much better season than last year which was blighted by an early heavy snowfall and frost! Mmm.
