I'm recently retired and had never grown much in my life until last year. We started late and didn't have much success. This year we are more organized and seem to be on the right track. About two weeks ago I planted potatoes in a container and just wondered when I should expect to see some stalks coming out of the soil? The container looks the same as when I planted it out.
At about 750 feet on the western edge of The Pennines. Clay soil.
