With all this humid weather my e-mail has been pinging away on a regular basis with warning of the dreaded potato blight. Here is a link to one of the services which will alert you when there has been full smiths period conditions in your area. Remember prevention of blight is the answer. This service is free and is used by a lot of commercial growers. http://www.potato.org.uk/fight-against-blight. I've already give my tatties their first spray, as I live between two big seed growers I have to be very aware of the problems this disease could have for them.
