Grow Your Own Potatoes Anywhere

If you like the idea of growing your own fresh potatoes but don't have a vegetable garden then these Potato Patio Planters are perfect for you. The neat Patio Planter bags are designed for use on patios, balconies or small gardens, in fact anywhere where space is an issue. You won't need to do any digging and can just empty out the contents of the bag at harvest time, it really couldn't be easier.

The grow bags are really easy to use and hold a generous 40 litres of compost in each bag. Each bag is large enough for 3-4 seed poatoes depending on the variety giving you a harvest of 20-30 potataoes from each bag. The sturdy bags are made from an extra tough polyethylene and include re inforced drainage holes and very trong woven straps for moving the planters around.

How To Grow Potatoes in Potato Patio Planters

You can use a good quality multi purpose compost or a 60 -40 mix of compost and topsoil. We recommend using a potato fertilizer to maximise the yield from your patio planters.

Depending on the variery you want to grow plant your potatoes between mid March and late April. We recommend planting the early varieties such as Homeguard, Duke of York or Orla as they are far less likely to suffer from potato blight.

Fill the potato patio planters up to about 15 - 20 cm deep with a layer of good multi purpose compost and space 3 or 4 potatoes evenly on top of the compost. Cover with a further 10cm layer of compost.

As the plants grow keep gently covering the shoots with more compost until the level is just below the top of the bag.

You will need to keep the compost moist but not saturated. An occaisional heavy watering is better than little and often as light watering may not soak doen to the lower roots.

Good product, used them last year and had alot of good potatoes, we don't have much room in the back so these were very handy to have. Using them again this year which is a bonus as I didn't know they were reusable, just hope the weather picks up.

I have used the 3 pack potato planter and you veggie mix. From three tubers planted I have only got five potatoes. The variety is Setanta. What have I done wrong. They were kept moist.

Hi Ali It is hard to know as it has actually been a good year for potato growth. Might you have overwatered. If you want to send some photos to quickcrop@gmail.com i will have a look and see what might be the issue. Overwatering or taking the crop to early could be the problem as Setanta are a main crop and are best left in the ground until early October Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Kevin

How many of a main crop such as Maris Piper for example, would you put in each planter.
Answered by Niall

Hi Kevin 5 to 6. You fill the bag one third full with compost then put 3 potatoes around the sides. Fill another third and 3 more and then fill to the top with compost Niall Quickcrop
