How to grow potatoes in bags

If you’re lucky enough to have space on your vegetable plot you can grow your potatoes in the ground. If you only have limited space read this potato growing guide to find out how to grow potatoes in containers.

Nothing beats that freshly dug, earthy taste of your own home grown potatoes! Growing your own potatoes isn’t as complicated as you might think, particularly if you grow them in potato bags. It’s the perfect method for growing spuds in small gardens, patios or even on balconies! Potatoes growing in containers are also at much less risk of pests and diseases. From our range you can buy seed potatoes for cropping throughout most of the year, including seed potatoes for Christmas which are becoming increasingly popular.

No need for special "potato bags" either. Black bin bags or anything really. Just don't let it get waterlogged.

I'm going to try and grow them in old tyre's this year and see how that pans out. I will start with one tyre and as they grow add another one on top and so on.

I didn't get round to using old tyres yet and just put some in big plastic plant pots, not sure when to dig them out though.

Jinxer, amother possibility are the large square ballast and sand bags used by builders merchants to deliver ballast and sand, 1 X 1m floor area and it is fully covered, unlike round pots which have huge swathes of uncovered areas.

That's actually a very good idea as them bags are single use only now under H&S, what a good way to recycle them.
