Its my first year growing vegetables at home and my potatoes have grown very high well over a metre ! Should I cut them down? as they are pushing everything else over. Also there are flowers on there but they are yet to come out.
Please help



Hi Kelly and welcome to GoY if the potato tops are still green and they have not flowered yet I wouldn't cut them back. Your potato crop will be ready to harvest 13 weeks after planting early potatoes and 17 weeks after planting main crop.
