Hi, my potatoe plants leaves have started to go yellow but there are no flowers. When will I know when to harvest it? I planted them in early March, variety Albert Bartlett.

    I'd have thought they'd be ready 10/12 weeks after planting.  Not all varieties produce flowers.  Have a rootle around in the soil underneath one of them and see if you can feel how big the potatoes are.

    Thanks, I'll check it out. I thought I had to wait for the flowers first!
