I planted some potatoes about April in pots They have grown very well, but only one plant has flowered. When should I attempt to dig them up?



It is best to dig them up after the leaves start getting yellow and the plant appears to wilt down.

If they are early potatoes they will be ready for lifting now. Main crop potatoes take 17 weeks from planting so not until end of August, try watering more potatoes in containers need a huge amount of water.
