Pot Grown Potatoes

I am currently growing first earlies, but I really can't remember the variety.  Am letting them just grow above the earthing up now.  If successful I would like to grow some for Christmas.  Would I be able to do this or would frost be a problem?

It is a purpose bought pot for growing potatoes in.  It's about 3-4' high and I have only planted about 4 spuds in it.  Just a trial really, but I do like your idea of using old compost bags, what a good idea.  Thanks for your reply (and the one abov also) and if they are a success, I may try more next year, but they do take an awful lot of compost!!!!

I am growing potatoes in pots and have been earthing up.  They have now reached the top of the pot and I now have a little mound!  I can't earth up much more so is is OK to just let them grow naturally now.  Any advice greatly appreciated.

My potatoes have reached the top of their container and I have earthed up again! I can't reall do this anymore as the container won't allow. I am already in danger of it spilling over. Is it OK to leave them to grow properly now?
