Weird spots - potatoes

Posted: 28/05/2013 at 20:09

This is a new one on me. I have potatoes in buckets on spent compost. This has bed done before with no problems but they have been slow and not grown as much as I would have hoped. But more importantly they have developed tiny spots( like rust spots). Any ideas, should I feed them with Tom feed?? 

this isn't blight as the plants are healthy another than the newly formed spots.

Hi all. Now I have beds and boarders I am looking to purchase lawn edger as I'm sick of pulling it by hand or scalping with the mower. unfortunately I don't have a roller off so have to mow at edges v carefully. 

 

So my question, how do you do it and what's the best tool for the job and how much did it cost. Also what brand is best aNd going to last well??

I have straight, round aNd curved edges aNd also grass up the side of concrete drive.

I'm about to go out now and have a look. It's just difficult looking everywhere! Unsure if I should put my dahlia in when it warms a bit or put them at the front where more open and sandy type soil! (Shipped in soil!!!)
