vetch is good organic green manure for vegetable plots and growing potatoes

QCan you advise what green manure to use prior to sowing potatoes, please?

Bob

AYour best bet is vetch. It’s fast to work and frost-resistant.

You’ll need to choose a winter variety.

You can also combine vetch with grazing rye which will boost the nitrogen levels of the soil.

If you sow it now, you can incorporate it into from February until late April.
