    I'm in Lancashire and don't plant till the last forcast frost, sometimes that can be late March beginning of April time. 

  • Traditional round here to plant at Easter - but given that Easter moves about I think most sensible people are guided by the weather as well image

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

  • Jad1 wish I had your sunny climbs. No early spuds here till mid March at the earliest and then covering with a cloch or fleece for most of April. Got heavy frost on first Saturday in May in 2012.

    Ooh! I might try some in the g/house, in a potato bag. Nothing ventured; nothing gained.image Thank you jad1 for inspiring me.

  • I'm jealous of you early starters only started chitting last week. Garden saturated again today. Will this rain ever stop!
