My plan is to earth up and wrap some horticultural fleece around my bags, I may very well put the poly tunnel over the top, although I met let them soak up some rain first to save on watering.
I'd be interested to see advice from people who grow them regularly though.
I'm growing them in sacks for the first time this year and I noticed this morning that they are just showing tips of shoots. Tomorrow night we should have a frost so should I put compost or fleece on them?
Have been covering up for weeks now as we get a slight frost most nights till early May.
If they do get a touch of frost keep direct sun off them as this burns the leaves.
Severity of frost depends where you are, tonight's forecast for here (W central Scotland) has improved to 1C, tomorrow night is forecast -2C, but then today was forecast last night to be rainy and I haven't seen a drop all day (although it was dirzzly last night).
Spuds seem to grow fast once they get going, I spotted shoots in the other 2 bags first thing and by this evening they were much bigger!
My potatoes caught the frost last night,theleaves are wilted. Can anyone tell me
will they come again, or should I start again. l have covered them up tonight just in case. Thanks for any advice.
Very cold here in Tipperary tonight. Some snow flakes this evening. Rain, wind and frost forecast for tonight. Everything covered up but keeping fingers crossed the wind doesn't blow the covers off.
