Potato blackleg
« on: June 08, 2010, 10:03 »
I checked my first early pototoes yesterday which seem to be doing extremely well. However just one of the plants I noticed had a little leaf-curl and on closer inspection the haulm at ground level was turning brown.  I immediately removed the whole stem and disposed of it.   What other precautions should I take? Does it spread like blight? Should I dig up the whole plant?   Advice most welcome. :unsure:

I'm queen of my own compost heap and I'm getting used to the smell.

This recent thread and the link therein should hopefully help.

Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!
