|All you need are a bag, sprouting spuds, compost, mulch and water (possibly enriched with worm juice).|
There's many clever ways of making good use of space in small gardens. The simplicity and practicality of potato grow bags just makes so much sense - particularly in small urban food gardens, verge gardens, balcony gardens - but also for any kitchen garden that wants to use vertical growing space too.
|Potato grow bags - use whatever you can find as the sack.|
All you need to make a potato grow bag is:
- sprouting potatoes
- compost/rich potting mix
- sack or large bag
- handful of mulch
- water (enriched with worm farm liquid if possible)
|Always select healthy sprouting potatoes to begin with. Here are kipflers and purple potatoes.|
