Seed Potatoes

Posted: 10/05/2013 at 13:54

I grew pink fir apple potatoes last year, when i cleared out the shed last week i found some potatoes which had been left in the tub i put them in for storage (to use as and when i needed them).

They have started to sprut would these be ok to plant again?

Lol, yea i thought the were roots, just hoped a least one was a stem .   Its growing a new leaf aswell so maybe it will flower soon.

 I was given an orchid (it wasnt in flower). I don't know if the 3 little buds are roots or new stems starting. Any advice happily received.

(sorry about the rubbish pictures)

T&M send out there magazines well in advance, i use mine to make my mind up of what im going to grow. You dont have to order straight away you have around 3 months, which for me gives plenty of time to order and recieve without being early or late.

In my opinion its not T&M problem.
