When are potatoes grown in containers ready to pick?

I seem to have lots of greenery that has started to yellow but no flowers?



hmm from experience you really need to give container potatoes loads of water particularly now as the tatties will be swelling , if they are first earlies I would expect some sign of flowers appearing around this time . Do you know what type you are growing? and remember plenty water.

one way is to gently dig around the stem to see how the spuds are doing

another thought , have you had greenfly on the plants a can effect the growth and could stop flowers appearing
