3 potato bags

5/5/12 Sprayed everything with Green Light Neem Concentrate
5/5/12 Inspected the bottom of the leaves and found a wee bunch of about a dozen small yellow eggs. Got rid of it immediately. Here’s hoping the Neem works because I really don’t want to have to bring out the “big guns”.

crochetkim's Potatoes Care Instructions
If sowing directly, aim to sow 5.85 inches (15.0 cm) deep and try to ensure a gap of at least 11.7 inches (30.0 cm).
Potato 'All blue' normally tends to reach to a mature height of 1.20 metres [imperial: 3.90 feet] so ensure you have enough space in your garden for this plant.
Your garden has full sun light - try to position in a partial sun location instead.
Remember to water moderately.
A soil ph of between 5.0 and 6.0 is ideal for Potato 'All blue' as it does best in acidic soil so test your soil acidity often.
Potato 'All blue' tends to be susceptible to Early Blight so keep a note of any developing symptoms.
