Preparing the seed

It is very important to determine the favorable dates for planting potatoes, because you need to start preparing the seed about a month in advance.

First, you should sort through the tubers and leave only healthy, medium-sized fruits. Then put them in boxes in a single layer and transfer them to a warm, humid and bright room where the daytime temperature does not fall below 14-16 degrees and the nighttime temperature does not fall below 6 degrees.
