potatoes in bags
« on: May 11, 2008, 18:15 »
I've got a few potato plants growing in those bag thingy that i started in the green house and are now on the patio i've got a few flowers on the plants and i wondered when to pull them for a good crop of new potatoes?!?!

I've tried looking down the side of the bags but it too tight to see anything!

Nitrogen for leaves, phosphorous for flowers/fruit and potash for roots, I think. (NPK) Some one correct me or confirm please. :)
I demand the right to buy seed of varieties that are not "distinct, uniform and stable".
