Thanks Welshonion. Im going to see if I can still get seed potatoes and if I can I might hedge my bets and just replant 2 rows leaving the rest in. My elderly neighbour seems to think they'll grow but they take up a fair bit of my veg patch so I need them to show a return! On the bright side by broad bean shoots are appearing....very exciting for a newbie!

I grow Pentland Javelin in potato sacks and a barrel. Due to cold I only put mine in yesterday. We don't get a huge yield but usually enough to keep us going until after Christmas.

Ali, I'm sure yours will pop up in a few weeks, just need a bit of warmth & rain if you haven't already had some.

Thanks KEF for the reassuring words! I have a feeling they will too. We've been having warm days and alternate rain and sunshine here in North Staffs so perfect for growing! Must try container potatoes sometime.
