Use Vitax Organic Potato Fertiliser before planting between February and April. Apply 135g/sq. m (4oz per sq. yd) over the vacant plot and lightly fork into the soil.
Dig a trench with a spade 10-15cm (4-6in) deep. Place seed potatoes in the trench 30cm (12in) apart, with the shoots uppermost. After planting cover the seed potatoes by pulling the soil from either of the trench to form a ridge above.
Potato Barrels and Other Planters:
Seed potatoes can be grown in any container larger than 30cm (12in) wide and 30cm (12in) deep. Good drainage is essential. Use multipurpose compost. Place several seed potatoes 15cm (6in) below the container rim. Fill to the rim with compost that contains added organic potato fertiliser.
Apply Organic Potato Fertiliser at a rate of 140g/sq. m (4oz/sq. yd). This is equivalent for typical pot sizes.
Place the containers in a sunny position and water during the summer months. Protect the plants from frost to prevent damage
