Alex, it's not a thistle on your spuds - it's a comfrey plant. Cut it down to 6" and pop the leaves between the spuds. It will fertilise them.

Just check my  Comfrey Pages for more uses.

There is a thistle next to it, a rare ish speciman seeded from nearby Myddleton House, former home of Mr Bowles the plant collector & horticulturist.

Too Normal



Won't be a winner. No raised beds, no pretties, all in rows, but it's fully functional and mine - all mine!!
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

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