glenn mahon asked 11 years ago

i sowed some roosters about 4 weeks ago and they are not up yet, i also sowed records on thesame day and these are well up. Should i take out the roosters and could i put someother variety in or is it to late?

Take up 3 or 4 tubers and see whether there are any shoots. It sometimes happens that potatoes are treated in store with sprout-suppressants and the tubers will not sprout, or do so poorly.

It is very late for planting at almost the end of May, but you will still get something from a crop planted now.
