Supply 1-2 inches of water each week. www.GrowingPotatoes.net 5 There are three effective ways to plant potatoes. 1. Hilled Rows Plow straight and shallow channels with a distance of 2ft from one another. Next is to plant seeds at least 1 foot apart. No need for containers. This is the cheapest way and can be for massive production. Make sure soil is of good quality. www.GrowingPotatoes.net 6 2. Straw Mulches This has similar plant spacing as Hilled Rows technique. The difference is you need to cover seed potatoes with at least 3in of loose straw which must be free from seeds as well. This helps in conserving the soil moisture. There is no need for digging it will yield lesser volume than the 1st technique and infestation of field mice may occur. www.GrowingPotatoes.net 7 3. Raised Beds Seed potatoes must be planted 1 foot apart. This will produce better yields and this is the ideal way if you have a low or poor quality of soil. www.GrowingPotatoes.net 8 If you have limited lot space there are groundless ways too. 1. Commercial Grow Bags Put a mixture of soil and compost in the base of the bag plant at least 3 seeds and put 3 inches of earth. Best used if you dont have a quality soil. This method speeds up growth because the dark color absorbs heat and it produces impressive crops. www.GrowingPotatoes.net 9 2. Black Garbage Bags planting is similar with commercial grow bags. A maximum of 5 potatoes can be planted. Too much heat will bring lesser yield. 3. Wood Boxes same principle of planting as raised beds. It can be placed on a patio. www.GrowingPotatoes.net 10 Remember some pointers for a fruitful harvest. Some potato varieties can be harvested after 3months. After such time the flowers are in full blossom. If the potatoes are still small you can put them back in the soil. It is best harvested in cold weather.
