Potatoes in pots.
Some of my potatoes have nice strong growth, but others look weedy.
They are the same variety, and have the same fresh compost, and are in the same position, by the shed.
I have added two photos for comparison.
Is there something wrong with the weedy ones ?
Should I feed them ?

You can buy special potato fertiliser if you want to try it. i wondered if they are all planted a bit close Hywel? Each potato needs abut 10 lites of compost.
Odd though as the others look very healthy.

Thank you. I shall get some of that fertiliser.
The tubs are quite big, and I have put 3 potatoes in each. It usually works.
