I leapt upon your piece re seed potatoes just now… I have been dreaming about them ever since I had the worst scab on my Duke of York last year. In 2009, I got the most wonderful variety, called Accent. And I have been searching for Accent ever since. Any idea where I can get them? They will not send them from the UK. Also… am I right in thinking that I cannot plant potatoes in the area with scab for some years? What caused this?
You might try Mr Middleton who sells a range of seed potatoes. Other vareities with scab resistance are ‘Cara’, ‘Picasso’ and Santé’. There are tow kinds of scab.
