Is this blight?

I'm a novice gardener that's started growing a few potato plants  (currently under frost cover) and I noticed on a couple of the plants brown marks on the leaves. After a quick googles I'm thinking it's blight which I'm assuming if so I would need to get rid of the plant? Thank you for your advice in advance :) 


  • I couldn’t be sure but I think it’s too early for blight, it looks more like water splash and the sun has scorched it.
    i hope I’m right.

    It looks like scorch to me too. Try not to splash the leaves when you water, directing it into the tub, rather than sprinkling over it.
    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    Thank you for your advice, should I cut back the damaged leaves? 
  • I would just leave them it won’t hurt rather than making a wound when you take the scorched leaves off.
