how to grow potatoes in bags



Put roughly 6 inches or soil or compost in the bag. Place the chitted potatoes on top, growth pointing upwards and cover with soil about another 6 inches. When you see shoots/leaves poking through earth up i.e. cover with soil/ compost and keep doing this until the leaves reach the top of the bag. You need to water regulary so the tubers/ potatoes swell
