Using growbags couldn’t be easier, here is how to grow potatoes in a bag. The great thing about potatoes is that they can be grown almost anywhere, even if space is limited like in an urban setting. Reusable potato growbags are available and are ideal for growing your own potatoes on a patio, balcony, greenhouse, polytunnel, or by the back door. What You Need:
- Your choice of seed potatoes, (if it is your first time growing potatoes, choose an early variety of seed potato, like Homeguard, Duke of York or Orla as they will be ready to harvest sooner than maincrop varieties and thus avoid the worst of the blight season.).
- One or more potato planters or growbags, also called potato tubs.
- A good multi-purpose compost, (or 60/40 mix of compost/topsoil).
- A potato fertilizer is optional but is recommended for a maximum yield.
