Hi, I have planted some seed potatoes in pots. Each large container has about 10 potato plants coming up. Do I just leave them all but should I thin them?



Nope leave them be, just add some more soil/compost to the top of the container and keep doing so until you can't add any more.

Normally once they have chitted you remove the shoots so you have two/three per tuber before you are planting them but as Moon Grower has stated just keep topping up with compost but dont forget to water and feed them ...
