I planted them out today. I incorporated some compost and sat them on a raised ridge for drainage. The cage is necessary because my plot is on a farm and there are loads of rabbits

The ones that I lifted were 'Desiree' and they tasted delicious

Sorry to be a pain. Will coarse grit from a builders supply be OK?

There's no harm in trying so I will put one in a pot and the other in the ground and see what happens. I have plenty of space so there's no problem there.

Can sharp sand be added for better drainage and can I use sharp sand bought from a builders supply

Turning the ground today and I unearthed 2 lovely big potatoes which were planted out last April. Absolutely perfect condition. With all the rain and sodden ground it's amazing how they have survived.

They will go very nicely with the dinner tomorrow evening

Instead of pots could they be placed in the soil in another spot?

I'm near Preston, Lancashire.

As the roots have now gone to the depth of the tube do I still bury the whole tube into the soil leaving the tip on the surface?

Maybe put some compost underneath for drainage?
