Height of spuds
I have 3 varieties growing this year (International Kidney, Charlotte and Golden Wonder) and have been a little surprised by the height of the plants. They are now about 4 feet high which I don't remember being attained in previous years. I don't earth up but do plant very deep initially and don't have any surface spuds at risk of going green. All plants look healthy and are flowering now having been in for about 12 weeks. I will wait until the shaws start dying back before harvesting most but might take a sneek peek at the International Kidney next week.
Is it just a combination of lots of rain and a hefty dose of chicken manure or am I a spud genius?
