the potatoes are not rotting, once the plant turns light green\yellow the stem just below ground starts to rot.
I planted three types and all are affected. I planted them on a patch of soil near were the road is. Maybe itís an acidity issue as well as I know that water run off from building materials causes the soil to become acidic. And maybe the acidic soil has caused this magnesium issue In some way :wacko:. The plot hasnít been used for 15 years and others on the site havenít got this problem.

Debbie there may still be healthy spuds in your sacks, have you had checked, it may not be too late to eat them  :)

Thanks, I think I will have a furtle this afternoon and see if they are okay.

A few of my first early Charlottes are looking like this, but as I am harvesting them and they seem okay I am not going to spray them.  The maincrops are okay at the moment  but I will get out the epsom salts if I see the same thing happening.

A potato problem?
