Could be leatherjackets. Many people have complained about them this year.
Said indoor bulb on the instructions.
I think it is sad anybody has reached adulthood and not know what sticky grass/goosegrass is. Used to stick it to fellow pupils at school!!
Mattbeer, if you cut the slugs in half, why do you collect up the remains? Leave them where they are and they will be gone by the morning. Eaten by slugs, maybe.
Please tell us what variety they are; it will be on the packet.
I planted some in the greenhouse during the first week of April.
They are just coming through now. They are just below the surface of the compost.
They are from Peter Nyssen who has always been reliable.
Well, that's where new varieties come from.
Pair of scissors is the most organic method there is.
The flowers are mainly useful because they indicate that the new potatoes are big enough to eat. No reason to take them off.
Sometimes old codgers pull young'uns legs!
If you only cut one root, I am sure it will survive.
