Warwickshire, United Kingdom
I have been growing potatoes for the first time this season. Heard lots of scary stories about potato blight and hoped I would be spared. This week I noticed some brown freckles on leaves (more on one variety and almost none on the other). One of the bushes remains unaffected. This weekend I emptied all sacks except for the healthy looking one. Not many tubers but all look good. Is there any chance it was not a potato blight? Can I use used compost from those sacks as mulch or add to my compost bin? It seems a waste to through it away...
