Lots of people!

Do a quick forum search on "blackleg".
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

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

The soil is ok to use for other crops, and by the time rotation brings potatoes back to that bed, it will be ok for them again  :(

RHS page........... http://apps.rhs.org.uk/advicesearch/profile.aspx?PID=223

suggests resistant varieties
