Potatoes are easy to grow. Below we address some common queries:

  • Hardiness: protect the potatoes from frost.
  • Planting In Pots: suitable for growing in planters or bags, but make sure excess water can drain.
  • Position: plant in full sun for best results.
  • Soil Types: plant in fertile, well-drained soil.

Soil Preparation: ensure the soil is well-drained and dig in plenty of manure.

Planting Distance: plant seeds 12-18in apart, around 5in deep into the soil. Rows should be around 75cm (2ft 6in) apart. Burying potatoes only when they sprout will help keep weeds at bay.

Pest Control: take precautions against cutworms, slugs, wireworms, and potato cyst eelworms.

Frost Protection: before the first frost use cloche/fleece or/and add extra earth/straw to protect against frost damage.

Watering Requirements: water regularly, particularly during dry spells.
