I am delighted to announce that TopVeg are now selling hessian bags or sacks for potatoes.
The sacks are:
50 x 80cm – not too heavy to lift.
ideal for storing potatoes, onions and garlic – allowing them to breathe and they do not sweat.
easy for the air to circulate through them.
- each sack will hold approximately 28lb.
- Introductory price for 5 sacks £5.45 plus postage & packing (UK only).
Introductory price for 10 sacks £10.75 plus postage and packing (UK only).
Sorry – this offer is for UK only
To use TopVeg Hessian sacks:
fill them with dry potatoes – leave the potatoes out, spread thinly, to dry naturally before putting in the sacks
do not wash the soil off the potatoes because washed potatoes will not store well, just let the soil dry before putting the potatoes into sacks
only store healthy potatoes, any damaged, bruised or diseased potatoes will not keep
once filled, store the sacks in a cool, dark place
check the potatoes regularly to make sure there is no wetness or smell. If there is remove the offending potatoes.
- keep inspecting the store for signs of rats and mice
- TopVeg Hessian potato sacks are suitable for storing onions and garlic.
