Watch while Chris shows you how he plants his potatoes in 30 liter pots . Simple. Just fill a 30 liter pot half full of any good multipurpose compost. Add 2 oz of blood fish and bone fertilizer. This year he added 1/2 oz of Potato Magic Fertilizer . Mix well. push 2 seed potatoes into the compost 2 inches from the bottom. Place in shallow trenches in the garden and draw soil around the bases. As the plant emerges continue to add compost leaving a few inches of stem exposed until the pot is completely topped up with compost. Water well in dry weather, do not allow to dry out. Add this method to your 2016 planning guide. Depending on the variety expect up to 10 Pounds of potatoes per pot.

I am an RN with over 50 years of experience. I still work 3 12 hour shifts a week at a busy hospital. I owe my good health and longevity to good genes and a healthy lifestyle. My Dad was a chef and I very early learned to cook healthy primarily vegetarian foods. I love to garden and grow my own healthy food. Digging in the dirt is both healthful and therapeutic. Good for us and the environment. I hope you enjoy visiting this site and find the information interesting and helpful.
