I always grow Desire' in my clay soil because over the years of growing potato's they always crop the best and keep well in storage.
I rotate the crop every three years so as not to infect the soil, but i have dug some up with potato blight which i think is due to the heavy rain we have had recently.
Although they do need water to grow and swell out it can be devastating if the ground is too wet for too long.
Its me doing the digging, so good for keeping fit.
Hubby showing off some of the crop, quite a good size don't you think!
No i don't mean his belly
I am very pleased with the yield this year
This is potato blight which can be very serious if left to spread.
