I grow for show LoserBloke.
Once your trench is Dug, do a mix of 1 bucket manure/1 bucket grow bag and 1 bucket leaf mould.
The rest is a secret but you will have the whitest potatoes you have ever seen. (unless you plant red)
Put 1 bucket of pure manure at the base and then place your seed on top. Then put 1 bucket (of the 3 above mixed) on top. when your trench is full sprinkle some fertiliser on top (seaweed, comfrey is great, whatever you have) then fill the rest of the trench with straw. Yes straw!!!
You will need slug controller and I recommend nematodes.
I have just given out far too much info.
PS. Your trench should be 2 spade deep and 2 wide! That is a lot of work but you only have to do it once.
line the bottom and sides with manure soaked straw that has rotted for a year.
