My potato haulms are long (6 foot). Get a good crop but think that if I could reduce haulm length, more effort could be put into tuber production. Any ideas?



I think everyone is getting long tattie shaws this year, Terry, probably due to the wet weather. We have the same and with a very good crop below ground.

Reducing the high of the shaws will not help you to get larger potatoes. We cut all the shaws back on our main crop potatoes at the weekend prior to harvesting in early September when the moon is descending again.
