I have 2 rows of potatoes which I planted as OH has a few health problems, I have earthed them up but they are all through again, how long do I have to keep earthing them up.



Keep earthing them up until you can't possibly earth up any more. The more soil that you earth the stems up with the more potatoes you will, potentially, have.

Earthing up also encourages more potato tubers to form and Snoop is right keep the ridge wide.
