potato leaves yellowing

The leaves in both my bags of Pentland Javelin are changing to a bright yellow. They were chitted then planted on 3 March. I've never grown potatoes before so don't know what to expect, but instinct tells me something is wrong. Advise appreciated, thanks. Maggie

    Could they be waterlogged?  Pierce a hole in the side, at the bottom of each bag - if water runs out, the chances are the drainage holes are blocked.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
