    My Charlottes usually go in during the first week of April.

    My tatties are still chitting and as snow is forecast over the weekend, it will be while yet before anything goes in the ground.

    I’d start now if I had time,four bags of earlies are first to go in then all the main crop next when there’s time. I sow a few bags of earlies a month up til around June. Spreads out the harvest for a longer cropping time.

    I've planted some of the earlies - Nicola and Maris Bard, in buckets in my friend's greenhouse and under cover at the allotment. I will be planting more at home as soon as the wind eases - I need to cover them with plastic sheeting and there is no point in trying to do that in a howling gale.

    I already have the borders of 2 greenhouses planted.I have got lots of potatoes chitting on my windowsills and they are ready to be planted but my allotment is just too boggy. I will start planting them out when the soil dries out a lot and the temperature rises. Until then my windowsills have to suffer.

    Goodness me sit on your hands for a while you folks thinking of planting now and consider when your last frosts are. We can have frosts up here in June!! I aim to plant on 20th April annually although last year it was in to May.

    I'm keen to get started with the spuds, but not in a rush to get them in ground. It's been really cold here this week, and frosts are very likely to come again.
