default Potato growing

Post by kramer on Tue Jan 25, 2011 11:51 am

Hiya

I've brought two potato growing bags off ebay and some seed potatoes but now I'm stuck.

When do I plant them? Do I need to provide drainage? Are they ok in grow bag soil/peat free?

Thank you

Try looking here

I wrote it as a guide on growing spuds...

And...yes you can use growbag/PF growing medium, yes they need drainage. Very Happy
