Potato blight is affecting nearly all the potatoe crops on our allotments. The potatoes harvested will not store so we are giving ours away to friends and neighbours. Have cut some tops down to ground level to leave in the ground for 2 more weeks before harvesting. Then I am cutting the affected leaves from my main crop and wonder if they will be OK. Think you will have to sterilise the soil thoroughly but personally I would dispose of that soil and not put it into your garden either.
