Sometimes the makeup and colour of the potato growing bags can attract heat from beating sun and store it within, causing wilting of the foliage. Look into this, possibly watering more or moving their location. Its hard to top the natural way of growing.

i reckon it's water deficiency so.


Seems to be a downside of growing in a bag/barrel alright, mentioned here already by blackbird..... http://www.gardenplansireland.com/forum/about1191.html

some of the leaves on my spuds are wiltig slightly and going yellowish, all over. they're in potato bags. is this just nutrient deficiency?


Could be just that they are ready for harvesting medieval knievel. Were the earlies and when were they harvested? Do a bit of rooting around in the bag to see what the crop is like.

Result Very Happy . Did you spray for blight at any time or were you growing a blight resistant variety.
