Just received my potatoes Charlotte and Foremost never grown them before and have a patio bag to do this.....
Any tips?? welcome and is it better to use a specialist potatoe compost/fertilizer very excited



The first thing is to chit them i.e. put each individual seed potato in a space in an empty egg box or similar and leave to grow sprouts until at least March before planting. When you say patio bag do you mean a potato growing sack? Whatever it is just use good soil no need for anything special and only a few potatoes per bag.
