Kef do you use old compost, new, soil???? I'm limited for space And grew one tuber in a builders black bucket. It provided a meal for 2 Per bucket, would have liked more but  suppose a bucket is small!! Unless I start in bottom bucket and when they show, cut bottom out of second bucket and then fill this so in essence earthing up. Would this work/get bigger yields??
