Why Buy Diggers Potatoes?

Disease Free, Certified Seed Potatoes - Heirloom and Gourmet Varieties

At the Diggers Club we only sell certified seed potatos that are handpicked and disease free unlike potatoes sold in supermarkets. 

From classic heirloom varieties such as Dutch Cream and Nicola  to the striking Purple Saphhire or Burgundy Blush for burst of colour in your salads and casseroles. For the ultimate stash of spuds, choose our Combo Collection of Heirloom potato varieties.

Heirloom Seed Potatoes

Mix and match individual heirlooms to suit your culinary needs. You'll find the perfect potato for roasting, frying, mashing or serving cold in a salad.

The Maris Piper, an heirloom since 1964, is hailed by Jamie Oliver and Heston Blumenthal. The Spunta is the perfect chip potato, while the Dutch Cream is arguably the best for mashing. If striking presentation is your aim, the Purple Sapphire and Burgundy Blush are for you.

Potato Growing Tips

♦ Choose an area that gets full sun and is not too far away from your house. The mid-winter dash to the vegie patch will be easier! 

♦ A good, healthy soil is the foundation to success so focus on improving the soil before you do any plantings. 

♦ Know what to sow, when to sow and how. Every vegetable seed has its own growing requirements. Choose the right potatoes to sow by first checking your growing zone using our Seeds To Sow Now Guides for cool, warm, hot, subtropical and tropical zones.
