Anyone got any tips on potato storage? What I mean is, how to store for a few weeks without them sprouting. Obviously they will eventually sprout no matter what, I just thought there might be a way of delaying that. Also, I know onions make potatoes sprout faster, so I don't store them in the same room.

Place into a linen or cotton bag in a dark cook place; cupboard or garage.

at this time of year, when it is getting cooler and until it starts freezing, I keep them outside on our balcony in a cooler or in a tub as we do not have a cold cellar or garage available - I do also store some in the fridge when the weather is too hot/cold, I just keep them in plastic bags and they last a long time
