Hi all!
I have planted potatoes in containers and this time have: Pentland Javelin, Charlotte, Desiree and King Edwards. Thanks to those who recommended the main crop varieties. Like before I added fertiliser when first putting the tubers in. However, I am wondering if I should keep adding fertiliser as I top up the soil. I have not done this before as I have not seen it referred to but have just read something to suggest that I should.



Certainly, carry on feeding as some of the potatoes you have selected are main crop and still have quite a while to go before they mature. Have a look at the 'Pound shop', I believe they have organic potato fertiliser for sale. As you will need to water regularly, then what fertiliser there is in the compost will be quickly washed away.

Thanks. Will do. I already have the fertiliser so I will just keep topping it up.
