Hi I'm growing potatoes for the first time in a bin/pot on my balcony and the plants are now very tall but there is now more space to earth them up any further.... Does this matter?
Also please can someone tell me how I know when the potatoes are ready - I read somewhere that you can just fell around in the soil but when I do that it fels as though I am breaking roots so I've stopped.
Any tips would be appreciated, thanks :)
