[dunno] hi fellow gardeners
I have a question for someone out there. I grow potatoes. Last week we had a hail storm. The buds were there but they are all gone now. My question is will they grow new flowers so I will have potatoes to harvest. [flower]
thank you sore muscles

This site talks specifically about hail damage to potato plants. I tried to copy and post but couldn't.

Hi Dream Gardener. [flower]
Thank you for your information. I went to the site you said. It dosn't look good for my potatoes. That's what I thought would happen. I grow two different kinds of potatoes. Red potatoes flowered two weeks ago. I think they are alright. It's the Ukon gold that the damage happened to. They still look good, but now flower buds, maybe they will come again. I sure hope so.
Thank you [wayey]
