Things to do this week

* Sow early potatoes in single rows, 15cm deep, 25cm apart and 45cm between rows. Main-crop spuds are sown in mid to late April. Increase spacing to 35cm.

* It is vitally important to include potatoes in your crop rotation as they are susceptible to disease if grown in the same ground year on year.

* Earlies will be ready about 14 weeks after sowing. Maincrops take 18 weeks.
