And here is the allotment of the obsessive bloke at the back of mine - blimey!

If you would like to be neighbourly you could tell him that his nice shade of blue will attract Bees

I used to live on the out skirts of Dublin if you wanted to go to town it was a 3/4hr bus ride car parking was up to £2 an hr or part there off and then they opened Blanchardstown shopping center (free all day parking) it was huge it has car space for up to 5000 and every weekend it would take nearly an hour of a  drive to get from my house to main city road and it was only 2 miles long it seemed that every person from the rest of the country would descend on this part of Dublin one of the reasons I moved to the country , where I am living now is a small village with a local chemist a butchers 3 pubs and a chipper/pizza and chinese takeout ,pop 2500

Potatoes in bags

Posted: 30/03/2013 at 20:23

Hi Bexlloyd , it depends where in the world you are, is your grow bag on its edge i,e long side or short side or do you have it on the flat ,if its any of the above ,try this method :-

1/put a 2" layer of compost in the bottom of a purpose made potato grow bag .

2/place 5 of the seed potatoes on top of the compost .(shoots pointing upwards)

3/cover the seed by about 1/2" of compost .

4/Furl down the top of bag till its just above the top of compost .

5/when the Hume's appear wait until they are 4 " high and cover with compost .

6/ unfurl the grow bag and repeat adding compost as necessary and water every other day .

hope this helps
