If You Must Delay Planting

Do: keep the bags of seed potatoes in a cool (45-55° F) dark place. They will keep 2 to 4 weeks if necessary. The eyes on the seed potatoes may begin to form chubby little sprouts, but this just means they are ready and waiting to grow.

Don’t: put them in the refrigerator because its low humidity will dehydrate them, OR in a warm dark place because the potatoes will make long pale shoots that will weaken the plants.
