Salad potatoes grow well in compost bags inside the greenhouse or in a frost-free part of your garden. Start by making drainage slits in the base of the bag with a knife.
Remove half to two- thirds of the compost and put it aside to reuse later for covering the shoots as they develop.
Bury two or three well- sprouted seed potatoes in the compost – any more and you’ll reduce the yield from each bag.
There's no earthing-up required, no digging and minimal mess.
Water well, two to three times a week, to ensure the compost never dries out. Once shoots break through, roughly every seven to 10 days, cover over with compost, until the bag's full.
