How long do seed potatoes last?
Last year, I bought some seed potatoes for the first time. Unfortunately, I never got around to planting them. Actually, I never even opened the box in which they came, which I kept in my garage.
So, I was going to give it a shot this year. Before I went and bought more "seed," I thought I'd check last year's stock. When I opened the box, the potatoes looked quite hard and dried out. I can't discern an eye from a nose. I assume these seeds are shot, but since I'm a newbie to potatoes and I don't know what seed potatoes look like, I thought I'd check here.
Will seed potatoes last a year? Do my seeds sound shot?
