Sprouting Potatoes: How To Sprout Them

Plant in April-May, as soon as they have reached two to three centimeters and have a purple color, but only if the temperature of the ground is about 12°. As long as frosts are to be feared, once the sprouts are out of the ground, mound them gradually to protect them.

You can also use your own potatoes to sprout them. In this case, pull the tubers out of the ground about a month before they mature, having selected the best ones, and let them rest on the ground for a few weeks.
