Is this potato blight

Posted: 20/11/2013 at 11:28

Bob Flowerdew in AG magazine recommended growing potatoes at the normal time. When you dig them up select the best potatoes, put them in a tin with sand or compost. Bury the tin (and remember where), dig the tin up at Christmas time and they should be like new potatoes. Disclaimer: I haven't tried this myself.

I have ordered from Crocus and Knoll gardens and the plants that arrived were in good condition and well packaged. Have a look and see if they do what you want.
