Some varieties of potato take longer to flower than others. If you planted them 12 weeks ago then they 'should' be ready to harvest.

Can I threadbutt, Miriamjohn and MG?

My 'earlies' are now in flower/or long do you think it will be before I harvest them? Will the foliage now start to die back...and is that my cue for harvesting?

Use the 12 week rule of thumb to check Izzy, if you are growing in a container then gently work your hand down to see if you can feel any reasonable size potatoes.

12 weeks are up now so I will check them today...if it stops raining long enough to go out there!

Thanks MG.
