I have recently moved house. No one has lived here for over a year so everything was very neglected and overrun with weeds. Whilst clearing I moved all potatoes I found (all over the garden!) into one area. I have no idea what variety they are, wether early or maincrop.

Other than digging them up is there anyway to tell when they are ready?

They grew so well in all the gardens I planted them in and all my ladies loved them. Best combination was with blood red hollyhocks. Looked stunning.

They will be winging their way back to you asap 

Bug Hotel & Hibernation Area Finished :)

One of the gardens I was working in had several sheets of white corrugated plastic  left in a corner. When I went to move them and lifted the top sheet way it was teaming with hibernating lacewings. Put it back and left it til the spring.

Whatever you leave in the garden will be a winter home for something. 

Shrub ID please

Possibly a Weigela. The leaves are more leathery than Philadelphus

Hi Hefty

Looks great. Wish more people would do this.

Everyone has an area in their garden that they can tuck a little bug hotel away and the fact its all reclaimed material is even better!

9ft Verdun?!!!!! That must be some kind of record 

Philadelphus coronarius variegatus

Have found both the variegated and yellow forms much weaker growers and both prone to scorch in full sun.

If you want the scent but not the height and something a little different in the Philadelphia world I would go for Manteau D'hermine. which has beautiful double flowers or if that's perhaps a little too small then Belle Etoile with her splash of purple in the throat is another of my faves.
