I was told to remove flowers from potatoes to have a bigger yield is this true,,,,,,,Stuart



No Stuart, just wait until the flowers have died back, then you can start digging your potatoes, if they are lates let the corms die down as well.

They did try this on Gardeners World a few years ago and claimed that it improved the yield...but there's enough to do in the garden without that!
