Potato flowers

Indre, Centre, France Fr

For the best potato crops, do you have to remove potato flowers as they form?



No, oh no... how do you think the farmers would cope Graham... in fact the flowers give you and indication of whether the tatties are ready to dig up or not :-)

Leave them and when the flowers go over for earlies that's the time to dig them, but with main crop you may want to leave them in the ground a little longer to grow and keep. but watch out for blight.
