New garden, new area, growing problems
My wife and I have recently moved to South Somerset. We have planted various veg plants, but have come up against problems. For instance, with potatoes, the plants have grown on top, even flowering first early spuds, but there are no tubers setting. Similarly, beetroot is showing leaf growth, but nothing underground. Our soil is dark and alkaline, very crumbly. We have dug in lots of composted horse manure since buying our home and weeded heavily. We have lots of experience in growing veg, having had allotments in the past in our former Berkshire home. Any help would be very much appreciated.
