Can I plant seeded potatoes the week after Christmas for a winter crop? And also if yes what seed potato would be the best? We live in north Canterbury

First decide whether you are temperate or cool/mountain - look in the climate zone section. Then read up about the planting times. Then you decide what potatoes you are going to plant. That will depend on what is available in your area.
