Storing potatoes for later growing
I'd like to grow potatoes this year. During the Winter, I get my potatoes from a farm share and I really like them, so I'd like to grow them in my garden this year. My problem is that they are already sprouting quite heavily. Is there a good way to stop the sprouting for some time before it's warm enough to plant them?
Currently, I'm storing them in my basement where it's cool and dark.
Also, I've found some sites like this:
which suggests oils to prevent sprouting, but it sounds a bit weird to be completely honest. Is that really a proven way of doing it, does anyone have experience with that?
