Not sure if that worked. If it did it's Black Barlow, bought bare root from homebase last year



Onions and potatoes

Potatoes coming through now, thanks for everyone's encouragement.

So now I have another question - how much of the plant do you cover up when you "earth up?"  Just the bottom of the stem or most of the leaves too with just a bit poking out.  We've been looking on the internet but there's a lot of conflicting or vague advice out there.


BTW the pictures look fantastic Deano, once again I am in awe

I've tried googling this chart but no luck. Do you have a link?

Not meaning to contradict you Mark 1963 but I had one in a pot which succumbed to frost.  And that was in the midlands - perhaps where the pot is placed is also quite important.  However I think this is pot bound.  I would pot up into a larger pot, and if you don't have a larger pot, then take it out, shake all the old compost out, trim the roots by 1/3 and then put it back into fresh compost.  That should do the trick.


Where are YOU?

Still haven't worked out how to add my location to the map.

All right .... own up .... which ones of you do this?

Crushed and thrown onto the path for the birds.

Slugs in the "Slug Jar" filled with salt water and then down the drain.  Unless they drown in the beer traps first.  But still down the drain in the end.

Thank you Tootles. I don't mind waiting, it's part of what makes gardening so exciting, but it is useful to have a rough idea so I don't sit there for weeks only to find we did it all wrong. 

I'll post some pictures when they start growing.
