Hi - newbie gardener. Growing some potatoes, and today they've all fallen over at the base of the stalk. Been waiting for them to flower, from what i read that's when they should be ready for harvesting. Should i be worried about the 'droop'?? Planted them a bit late - so don't know if that will affect the harvest anyway. Any tips on whether to leave then or harvest would be great. Thanks
Mine got very tall and then flopped over. They are ready for harvesting. Check one plant to see. If they have been in the ground for 12 weeks or so they should be ready.
