Do not despair! First of all, potatoes grown in bags of compost are wonderful to harvest and look extremely clean. It will save you a great deal of bother. Secondly, your compost will not be lost afterwards. You can use it as a wonderful mulch, or even for growing more things in pots next year. It's true that you shouldn't re-use compost for your most precious projects, but if you have a sturdy, healthy plant that simply needs re-potting you could do a lot worse.
