I have a question of the following nature - is it true that if you cut off the flowers on the potatoes, then the yield will be greater? Or vice versa - the yield will decrease due to damage to the flower? Some say that picking flowers at a certain point, and if you miss it, they simply begin to grow again, thereby taking nutrients from potato tubers.
You know, Sergey, my grandmother lived all her life in the village, where, as you know, potatoes are one of the most important garden crops. She never broke flowers. Let us reason logically, the berries on the potato bushes appear after flowering and are small in size, and therefore they can not pick up many nutrients from the tubers. Personally, I think that climbing on the beds and picking flowers on potatoes is a monkey work.
