4 steps to grow potatoes in large pots or bags

  1. Start seed potatoes by chitting them first, place the rose end facing upwards in empty egg boxes on windowsills, once you have green shoots plant them.
  2. Spread 15cm of potting compost at the bottom of the sack. Evenly space 3 seed potatoes on the compost, green shoot upwards and cover with 15cm of compost.
  3. When the foliage shows through the compost allow it to grow to 20cm high, then cover with another 15cm of compost leaving 5cm showing. (Repeat until the container is full.)
  4. Potatoes in bags require plenty of water particularly during dry weather, keep moist.
