My potato leaves have died under the mounded soil, will they still grow?

Q.

Kia Ora. I over heaped my potatoes plants and a lot of the leaves died under the soil. Will my potatoes continue to grow? They've been the ground about 2.5 months and were doing really well until then.

Hi Max, sometimes this can happen and it is more than likely your plants will recover, but it will take time. To aid their rehabilitation, rake away the excess soil to allow more light, air and water into the soil around the plants. Remember to feed your potatoes regularly with Tui Potato Food.
