What's wrong with my potatoes

Posted: 28/09/2017 at 11:29

hello, yesterday I posted a question about my potatoes ( identified as hollow heart disease) but forgot to ask 1) are they still edible and 2) do I need to do anything to the allotment soil to prevent a recurrence?


thanks

Hi, thank you very much, that explains a lot.....the potatoes we lifted at the end of July appear to be free from this condition, but as you know August was wet and we didn't get to lift these until the end of that month. The South Yorkshire weather is obviously to blame.....


just one further question, are they edible? I've tossed the ones I've found so far. 


Thank you

These allotment grown potatoes(Red Duke of York) look fine on the outside no obvious pest or fungal damage or on peeling, but cut them open and this is what I find.....very puzzled....all help gratefully accepted. Thanks 

Bug troubles

help please I have some apple trees in containers in a south facing alcove, but they seem to be attracting (what I thought was woolly aphid) but I may be very wrong....


it is a white fluffy stuff not very large but seems to like the areas where the young shoots come off the branches as well as the branches themselves. I have tried using a bug spray as there weren't too many but it just keeps coming back!!!!


also where some of it was the bark of that branch appears to have split but the growth doesn't appear to be affected yet...


all ideas/suggestions very welcome please

Please can anyone out there help me?


I am moving house and have some rose bushes that have great sentimental value to me and would like to take them with me.


How can I move them without causing too many problems?


All ideas welcomed

Looked it up on google and the plant head doesn't look the same it looks flatter in their photo, the stem looks like a grass or bamboo with bumps where you would expect leaves to come from. Will still keep searching thanks for your input

Saw a plant in the verge near Sarston in the Cotswolds that looked like a huge dandelion head on a grass/bamboo type of stalk. It was beautiful any ideas on what it could be ? Photo below.
