Hey Jen! I used hessain sacks and sand (top tip there with the play sand Verity!) I had about 70% success rate, and i was pretty happy with that. quite a few had started sprouting (not mouldy at all so i included them in the ‘success’ figure) so ive planted them on my allotment. Feels a bit ‘circle of life’ lol
I stored mine in a garden shed . If you have a garden shed, you could store it there. You just have to make sure that it is watertight. If you are planning to store them in piles then it would be better if you could store them in smaller piles rather than larger ones. The ideal temperature for storing the potatoes would be 4C and the humidity must be kept at 80 to 90 percent. Under good storage conditions, the potatoes will last upto 6 months. Always remember to store them in a cool and dark place with good air circulation. Potato bags made up of hessian is a good bagging option. In order to avoid dampness, it would be a good idea to use pallets to keep the bags off the floor.
