spuds

Posted: 02/09/2013 at 10:43
Can i ask, our spuds this year (our first) were not good,now because we live in different areas do the spuds tend to taste different due to different soils and different growing ideas or are they supposed to be Relatively Uniform as many of sup/markets are mostly, and do the large growers suffer from some huge spuds off the same plant as the nice more regular small better tasting ones,it seems to me that choice is great but planting spuds each year trying to find a good early takes far to many seasons ,so would,nt it be a good idea if this site could sort of find the right spuds for the right areas, im moving to Norfolk ,lots of spuds so i intend to visit the growers for info and talk to the allotmenteers and will post their answers asai can , Alan

Pete they are for drainage at the bottom of the plant pot, people used to use broken old plant pots broken up small and put into the base of the pot before adding the soil ,sometimes people use polystyrene,really any type of stones will do the trick,
Good luck
