My first early spuds, set in March look healthy enough but are only 2ft 6 tall with no flowers at all. Photo below
My second earlies, set over 6 wks later are 3ft 6 tall and have a great crop of flowers. Photo below.
What's happening here ?

Why not scrabble underneath and see what size the spuds are?

Hi Sue, I 've only looked at the pentland Javelin so far as we have enough for now, and there were just 4 decent sized tatties, ( no small ones ) , but I'll check out the much taller ones shortly
