Hi, I'm struggling with this one. I LOVE kipfler spuds and want to grow some but I'm not having a lot of luck. I'm wondering if I used soil that was too rich, or if it's just too warm where we live - on the coast it mightn't get cold enough through winter. Plus, my chooks got into the spud plants and ate all the green off them, they only sprouted back a little after that. I've harvested one of my three spud heaps, I got a handful only. Still a 'profit' but I want to grow much more than that. I have more seed potatoes, waiting to go in - should I wait until autimn again? All info welcome! Oh, and I'm going to try jackie French's straw and bandicoot method next time - why waste my lovely chookhouse compost on spuds that don't need it? Chances are, it's too rich a diet for them.
