Red Potato Plants
Q.

red potato

Anonymous added on August 25, 2015 | Answered

I have just harvested my red potatoes and now have a great deal of roots. Do I need to remove these roots before I begin to prepare the soil for next year's planting, or just leave them all and move on? There is an amazing amount of roots in the soil, much more than with my white potatoes, and this is the first year I have grown the reds. Great success in the potatoes, but what to do with all those roots?
