          I live in a part of the UK with very mild winters. Please take this into account before thinking "if he is sowing those now...."

                      Me too. Very tempted. Could fit a bag in the gh at that time of year. What variety? I assume first earlies?

                        Yes first earlies - Sharpes Express. TBH don't know how many more spuds there will be under there in the bags but after all, it's only for a bit of fun be interesting to compare yields with the ones planted on the plot.

                          Did they flower, or did you just try them anyway?

                              I'd have done the same

                                According to the excellent https://calculat.io/date/count/13--w...-february-2022 l have a week or two until I try my Charlottes.
