Can the spuds survive this? 6 inches of water after huge storms in the early hours of 23rd June.

    Oh no, can you channel the water to flow away ? The weather here has been horrible. We had a river running down the road because the rain was so heavy. Thankfully it’s starting to ease now but it’s easy to see how quickly floods happen. Hope they survive xx

    the same problem at our allotments…we grow everything in raised beds so it hasn’t affected us….hope your potatoes survive

    My sympathies. It’s come at the worst possible time as I’m sure you realise. Really all you can do is hope that the water drains away quickly otherwise I’m sorry to say that it’s likely at least some tubers will rot.

    Hope the sun comes out for you and dries them off.
