Flowers on potatoesSome of the potato plants are flowering! For new potatoes this should mean they’re ready. You don’t have to empty the whole bag out – just have a root round in the compost and see what you find.
Main crop potatoes which you want to be bigger can be left until the foliage dies back.
Don’t forget to have a sniff to see what potato flowers smell like!
