how to grow potatoes in bag

Posted: 26/05/2012 at 19:03

Ive just found some Carra seed potatoes in my shed today that i had forgotten about, unfortunately i have no space on my allotment to plant out. I recently read on the forum that it was ok to grow spuds in compost bags. I havent tried this method before, so any advice would be appreciated.

What's the weather like in your area?

Nothing beats a good dig, hard work but well worth it,add plenty of well rotted horse manure and come autumn a good amount of rough sand.

I would agree with woodpigeons,try covering the bed where you have planted them with some netting,it worked for me.
