Description

Disclaimer: These Potatoes Are Sprouting!

A note from our potato expert about planting...

Will my potatoes grow if they are soft?
Potatoes can take a small amount of dehydration/softness and still be fine to grow. We've planted soft potatoes on occasion and always had success. The only time we have had soft potatoes fail is when they were planted in hot soil - it couldn't take the stress. The soft potatoes will grow weaker with time.

Will they produce weaker or smaller plants?
No. Once the potato has roots and a plant, it will continue to grow as normal. It doesn't need the tuber anymore. What could happen is a stress factor that shuts down the sprouting process because the tuber is weaker than normal. Then you wouldn't get any plants at all. But if you do get plants, keep them happily growing. They will produce a full crop!

What if the sprouts have broken off in transit?
The sprouts will grow back again. Sometimes you'll get more stems when the new sprouts grow back, which is a good thing!

Guarantee

We guarantee the perishable items we sell to be in good, viable condition when we sell them. Perishable items include, but are not limited to, garlic bulbs, flower bulbs, seed potatoes, onion sets & transplants, bare-root trees, vegetable crowns… etc. If your perishable item arrives in substandard condition, take photographs and please contact us within 3 days of the purchase date (or delivery date) and we will provide you with a refund of the purchase price (excluding shipping costs), or a replacement. Accordingly, we urge you to open any boxes marked as “Perishable” immediately upon receiving them and inspect the shipment thoroughly (do not crack open heads of garlic, we do not accept claims on cracked garlic). Because some perishable items can deteriorate very quickly, we cannot accept any claims beyond the 3-day time frame as it becomes too difficult to determine if these items were delivered in substandard condition, or if they turned into such substandard condition because of having been improperly cared for or stored once delivered.
