So what's the verdict on the forum about whether we can risk putting potatoes out? Mine have been chitting away quite happily for a few weeks and I think they're largely ready for planting (I'll use patio bags). I don't want to leave it too much longer as a few of the small ones are starting to go a bit soft.
But, even though the days seem / feel warmer, it's definitely still round about zero by night - I'm in Central London as well!
I know that potato foliage is frost-prone but is there enough warmth in the sun by day to get them started and then hopefully by the time shoots get above soil level, the frosts may hev ended..?
