Ashdale depending on where you live it's a bit too early to plant your potatoes yet. I aim to plant mine around the middle or end of march.

As to your potato sets, are you intending to grow them in containers or in the ground? If in say a potato bag then 3 tubers are normally enough and you'll find 1st or 2nd earlies or Salad potatoes will do best this way and depending on the variety they'll come up first. Maincrop potatoes are better planted in the ground. As to the yield, they're all different and it will depend a lot on how much you feed and water them and the variety you've chosen. Best of luck.

I would be in agreement with Joyce Goldenlily.

If possible I'd leave them as they are for now, until they've flowered and the leaves are going over. September time perhaps when the soil is still warm but whenever their leaves have started to turn yellow whatever month that may be.

Would you pay more for a pint of Milk ?

Surely we can talk here about any topic. There are plenty of individual threads about plants.
