Allotment Diary : Planting the First Container Potatoes of the Year


Planting a few early container pot grown potatoes. I’m planting 2 potatoes in each 15 litre pot and hoping to get a small harvest cropped in mid May after around 90 days.Just planted in reguar compost about 2-3″ from the bottom of the pot and filled to the top with more compost and about an ounce of added organic fertilizer.

These will be kept indoors until they break the surface of the soil and then be grown in the polytunnel or greenhouse with some frost protection when needed.

Happy Gardening.
