    Reading this is giving me an excuse to have a furtle. Mine went in the second week of March and there was a flower about to open . Then they got caught by a frost. Hmmm think a furtle is in order.

    Definitely furtle! I always leave mine too long because I worry about digging too early and then miss the first baby potatoes, which are the best ones after all!

    Glad I'm not the only one. I had a cheeky furtle today but will leave them in their pots for a bit yet

    Mine went in weekend after St Paddys day.. so by my reckoning that's the 6th of June. I've a few bags of each, so may try some a week before then to see.

    (btw, all the compost I have in the bags from them - any good to use elsewhere? - can I bung it back in a compost bin?)
