Do you mean 3 litres? That's what they look like! I grew mine in the compost heap again and have had some beauties. They have plenty of space to ramble and it has been quite moist despite the drought this summer. 

How do I find a gardener?!

Not comfrey but an annual echium called blue bedder. It looks very similar to the tall one but behaves as an annual. Beloved by bees of all varieties. And yes, borage. Freeze the flowers in ice cubes!

I would like to dig up and store my Charlotte potatoes. Will they be ok in sacks or will they go soft? A neighbour says not to store. Any advice welcome!

The foliage on my Charlotte potatoes is now all floppy. Can I dig them up and store them in sacks or are they likely to go soft?
