I'm growing some veg for the first time, including both early and main crop potatoes. I live in the very far north of scotland, 50 miles north of Inverness, 60 miles south of John O Groats! Can I throw the potato greenery, on to the compost, if I cut the root off, and bin just that bit. The crop of potatos are large, and I am trying to grow organically! It's just I recall my late dad saying not to put the potato plants on the compost, otherwise you get potato plants all over the garden!
