Potatoe Shoots Up or Down

Posted: 10/04/2014 at 22:59

If you didn't chitt the spuds then they could be "upside down" and still grow. Point most of the shoots up and it will be ok. Don't worry just get them in the ground.

There will be a shoot from every viable eye on the tuber. They will all grow up to the light, roots to follow.

A lot of questions there cleverduck.

All of the above except chilli I think will grow outside. Don't know about chilli so don't know.

What is growing in your garden at the moment? This will tell you a lot about your soil. If it is under grass then it will grow most things without much additives.

 Should keep all sort of gear safe and dry. Next project is a garden table to go with the bench, don't hold your breath.

Rhubarb will grow in shade but you will get green stems if it doesn't get some good sunlight.

Impressive GG. What are you lining it with?

In November/ december you could plant some there with plenty of FYM if you can get it. By plenty I mean two to three bukets per crown. Combine this with a good mulch of same or good garden compost and it will crop like mad.
