Tubers should be planted in the spring. Where the ground freezes, dig roots up in the fall and put them in dry storage. If the ground does not freeze, leave them in the earth throughout the winter and divide them in spring. To propagate potatoes, cut tubers into pieces, making sure that each tuber contains at least one "eye".
