  • Potato foliage tips wilting

    On one of my potatoes some of the tips of foliage are wilting. The remaining 7 of my potatoes are OK. What is wrong please. Do I need to dig it out so it does not affect the others either side ot it or can I just leave it and it will still crop OK? Thanks

    Any change of a photo...and are there any black marks on the leaves or stem?
    Are they in tubs or in the ground?

        The potatoes are in the ground and I am in Essex.

          To be honest, I'm not so sure yet.
          Were they certified seed potatoes or a few from the supermarket?

            A few supermarket ones as an experiment during lock down. Earlier, I had one stem rot at the bottom where it came out of the soil which I removed.

              Hi little money...its hard to say.By the sound of it the one that rotted sounds like black leg.
              The pics you posted look healthy enough although there is a black mark one one of the stems.
              The ground also looks quite dry, have they had enough water.
              Whrn did you plant them?

              And when your back stops aching,
              And your hands begin to harden.
              You will find yourself a partner,
              In the glory of the garden.

                It looks like what happened to a few of mine. When I pulled them up, I discovered that the stem was almost severed through just below the soil, I assume having been eaten by something (probably slugs; I have enough of them).

                  I would lean towards blackleg too.
