Hi Everybody,Long time since l have been on as l have been looking after my older sister.......... Can anyone tell me when to dig my early potatoes up please. They have been in since about march and have flowers on them now..thanking yu in advance. Buzby




Should be ready now - try scraping some soil from around them until you find some and see if they are big enough. I have been digging mine for a couple of weeks now. Not much lost if you dig one up and look if you aren't sure!

On the other hand I have just been and dug the first root of our potatoes. Planted 28 March and it yielded just three tiny spuds! Our weather has been much drier than for most of you and I suspect that is the reason. I will have to leave them a little longer yet.

Would you like some of our rain Bulbaholic?

A month ago I would have said YES!!!! Steragram but it seems to be catching up on itself now. Fortunately not nearly as heavily as in some places.
