    Mine are coming out in September, ie when I get round to it. I expect they'll be full of milipedes again If you want some hessian sacks they sell them on ebay

    thanks for the info - I hadn't thought of e-bay and will have a look at JBA seeds. I have to say he was trying to be helpful and is a very nice chap. But I like the idea of headphones and will dig out my IPOD tomorrow.
    Thanks again
    Slowly takes it!

    I'm familiar with planting potatoes but I'm not sure an IPOD will yield much of a crop....................

    Mine stay in the ground until I either need them or the haulms have died right back which ever is the later.

    Don't forget to spread them out somewhere to dry before storing.
