I've been using old potting compost to earth mine up -checking for nasties first. Have also added the odd handful of dried chicken poo to the mix. It's my first year growing them too, but they look happy enough.
I'm a little confused here,(not hard for me), when earthing up, is it really needed to add "food"as the "food"needs to be there at the spud which was put in the ground in the first place?
