I planted a cordon last year in the wrong place - it is far too shady etc.  Any advice on how to move it to my allotment?

Now's the time I go through all the packets I've accumulated and I'm ashamed how many I haven't opened or only half-used.  I don't hang on to anything past its "sow by" date.  But I'm wondering how much seeds deteriorate when they've only got one year left to sow.  Do they tend to be less than 75% viable at that point or do they still have sufficient oomph to provide a decent crop.  I'm not talking about anything fancier than beetroot, peas, tomatoes, carrots and broccoli. Everything has been stored away from heat and light and in original packs.  Interested to know others' experiences.

Where we are, in SW France, I have to lift potatoes earlier than  Herts, UK, as they will start to shoot while still in the ground by mid August.  I grow Rosabelle as  mid early and keepers, and Pink Fir Apple as lovely potatoes for the winter as they always have the texture of new potatoes even when cooked in a stew. 
However, Rosabelle start shooting by the end of Sept, and now the PFA are shooting as well.  I go over them all every couple of weeks removing the shoots.  I keep them in the dark and cool. 
Is there any way I can stop them shooting?
