My first ever crop of potatoes has been great - and I've realised how much money we've saved by growing them, so can I produce them all year round? If so how, and which varieties please?

no. you can get first earlies, earlies, maincrop and lates. the first earlies and earlies are you new potatoe types, main crop are more the white varieties like the maris family, the lates are more like your king edwards. potato barrels are excellent for extending the cropping time as you can plant earlier by insulating the barrel, but grow enough pots and you can store them for many months in a cool dark dry place, thats how shops have pots all year round if they are not importing from everywhere else that is!!
