hi zombiegardener,you have done right for trying to grow over winter and they should be ok in the greenhouse but i would not have put them in till signs of the first frosts.

And yes layer up the soil as the the potato plant grows.this will be my first time to try growing them in winter as i have only grown potatos in spring and summer.

Good luck and let me know how you get on.
