Essex, United Kingdom
Hello folks - its a lovely day here in Essex and I've been out to inspect the potatoes I planted in my mothers garden. Cant remember the variety, but they went in (after chitting) almost a month ago, and as I'm a complete novice as to potatoes, I am unsure how they are supposed to look at the moment. I planted about 20 tubers and although they all seem to have some growth, only about 4 of them have growth of more than a couple of inches. I know I have to bank them up, but don't know if this slow growth rate is normal. Should I put more soil over the ones that don;'t seem to be doing much? Would it encourage them. I had expected more action before now, and now have another variety chitting that will be ready in a few days. Eek! Whatjareckon guys?
