buckwheat/all- As a complete newbie to growing spuds I am wondering how much water (roughly) is a "generous" water each day?
My dustbin is an 80L vessel filled half way...Any advice would be much appreciated : )
Do newly planted seed potatoes need fertiliser that is nitrogen (nettle) or potassium (comphrey) rich? They are growing in garden compost in bins. And as they grow?
Last year I used 15 litre pots both for potatoes and tomatoes (not together) with success.
This might sound a silly question but do I put the lid of the dustbin on after planting?
As the potato shoots start to appear keep covering them with soil or compost until you reach the top of the bin.
Thanks will leave the lid off ...though it snowed this morning then rain now sinshine April showers !!!!
