Wilting Potato Plants

Anonymous added on June 20, 2015 | Answered

I am a first time gardener and have planted Yukon potatoes in a raised bed. They were planted mid April and have grown profusely to about 4 feet tall. I have shored them up with dirt and most of them look great and have started to flower; however, 3 of my plants have wilted. . . literally over night. Not at the same time either. The leaves are still bright green, no sign of insect problems or odd smells. They just wilted over night. Please help!
