potatoes damaged by frost?

Graham Woods asked 11 years ago

I planted my potatoes just over 3 weeks ago but no sign of growth yet. They were chitted for 6 weeks in my garden shed in Feb & March but as there was a fairly heavy spell of frost during this period I am wondering if the crop may have been damaged by this? Should I leave them a bit longer or dig one up to check?

They will probably appear soon. Damage to chitting potatoes would have been obvious.

Scrape back the soil over one plant and see what’s happening.
