It's very rewarding growing spuds.
Traditionally they are growing in ground and you have to keep piling the soil up to cover the spuds to stop them going green. You also had to wait until the plant had fully died back before you could harvest any.
Some bright spark came up with this clever idea which allows you to grow spuds in small spaces and access the potatoes through the side flap without having to remove the whole plant. Brilliant!
How to Grow Spuds
1. Fill soil level to 1/3rd of bag only
2. Plant seed potatoes (from nurseries) or ones from your cupboard that have started shooting
3. Water and wait till the plants leaves reach the top of the bag. Then (strange as it feels) pour soil into the bag filling it to 5cm from the top so only the top couple of leaves are still showing and water
4. The leaves will continue to grow above that level, but more importantly the spuds will grow in the soil underneath and you can access them through the side flap. Easy!
