all my potatoes are growing in the same soil mix sandy loam ,mushroom compost general mulch etc and ive followed your planting tips . Some are doing really well and some are stunted and look a bit sad. The best ones are producing some potatoes but im worried that the others are not going to be much good. Any ideas.?

I tried to keep hilling up with a 1/2 compost mulch and probably soil was too wet. I did get much of a crop. Use good soil with completely composted material. I would say you probably have some disease.
