One of my potato plants leaves are going a wierd yellow-ish patchy colour.
The leaves are softish and floppy-sh

Everything else seems fine. No other plants are affected

Is it an illness or a mineral deficiency?

As always, people can access a biggerpic on the blog

only came across this question now!!!!
probably blackleg as only one plant is affected and then only one shoot. at this stage the stalk has probably died off but the plant is probably alright.

bang on right as always, the plant seems to have sorted itself out, and although growing slower than the others, seems to be fine.

thanks as always Michael

My earlies got blackleg last year. The halums and tubers did not grow any more. The potatoes were clean and in perfect condition, just small. The taste was fine.
