Potato Planter Bags
Hilling up soil or mulch around potato plants can result in high yields due to the plant developing tubers along the entire covered part of its stem. Backfilling a trench can take advantage of this growth habit, but in Australia's often poor soils, the achievable depth can be insufficient for optimum potato growth. Container growing can be a productive alternative; we have selected this extra-large, professional quality grow bag with sturdy handles as ideal for raising spuds. Planting instructions: 1/3 fill the bag with good quality potting mix, compost etc, put 3 - 5 spuds on the surface then cover with a few centimetres more of mix. When shoots emerge, add mix to cover; continue to hill up as shoots re-emerge until foliage is above the top of the bag. When the plant starts to die back, tip the bag over onto a tarp and harvest the bounty! Width 460 mm x Height 460 mm - 75L capacity.
