It's a vegetable sack. It smells. It does what a vegetable sack does.That's all I ask. Top tip; it doesn't work without vegetables in it. Good enough for me.
The sacks bring back memories, what a beutiful smell. This traditional material and proven design means you wont have problems here with this storage.
I got these as a gift for my flatmate and he seems pretty pleased with them. So much so that I'm going to order more. Like another reviewer I could have also managed without the writing on the bags and if I had to change one thing about them it would be that. They aren't the size of what I think of as a potato sack but that's a good thing particularly when growing multiple varieties.
Our Daily Express-published horticulturist Martin Fiddes says; "Potatoes are not too difficult to store providing you follow the following simple precautions prior to storing.
"Firstly, allow the harvested tubers to dry in the field before storing – leaving them out in the sun for a few hours should suffice. Then discard any diseased, damaged or potentially unhealthy potatoes and brush off the excess soil once the potatoes have dried in the sun.
"Once you are ready to store your crop, find a suitable place. A location which is dark, dry and between 5 and 10 degrees C usually gives the best results.
"It’s best to use paper or hessian sacks for the potatoes and check after one month and periodically afterwards for slugs you may have missed and any developing rot."
