A fine potato, was worried at first that they were in bad nick as they had started sprouting a few shoots but the lads at quickcrop said it was nothing to worry about. Aside from that they arrived swiftly two days after I ordered them and was surprised by the catalogue and the free jellies too. A great idea and there are some things I hope to pick up in the catalogue in teh near future.

my first early Duke of Yorks were coming in well but second early Nicola are about 20cm higher and flowering but Duke of York not flowering yet, in same raised bed. Is this normal? Also, with the wind over the last 24 hours, all the potatoes have fallen over, not many actually broken. Will this damage the spudsir affect yield or will they cope? Thanks very much

Hi Eimear The different varieties will come on at different times and Nicola are always very early so nothing to worry about there. Once the stems are not broken the plants will recover over the coming days and will even continue to grow on their sides so no worries there either. Just nature at its best Regards Niall Quickcrop
