Hallo all. About 2 weeks ago I bought some seed potatoes from the local veg and flower market..from a potatoe farmer....I have them in uncovered egg boxes in my green house, my question is...they havn´t started to sprout yet, am I doing something wrong or how long do the potatoes need until they start to sprout?. Thanks in advance for any answers.



The only thing that I could suggest you do differently, Rogi is to have them somewhere cooler and less bright than the greenhouse. I know that Germany has had a cold winter but if it is now dry and the ground has started to warm up, then they would be better planted. We planted ours last week.
