How to Grow Potatoes in Containers
Whatever you choose it needs to be able to hold a generous amount of compost to allow the tubers to develop, good drainage is essential. The Unwins Potato Bag is specially designed to grow three seed potatoes. This will generate a substantial crop of potatoes. It’s ideal if you are new to vegetable growing and want to have a go, great for kids; buy them one each and challenge them to grow the heaviest crop and simply perfect if you only have a small garden, terrace or even a balcony.
Simply place a generous layer of Gro-Sure Vegetable Growing Compost into the bottom of the Potato Bag. Position three chitted (see chitting) seed potatoes on the top of the compost and cover over with 10-15cm (4-6inches) of more compost.
When this happens cover over the shoots with a new layer of 10cm (4inches) of fresh Gro-Sure Vegetable Growing Compost. Repeat this process until the Potato Bag is almost full. When the leaves are 20cm above the bag start feeding every 7-10 days with Growmore.
Water the tubers and keep the compost moist but not saturated. The plants will start to root and shoot until the shoots and leaves push through the compost layer.
