How to Grow Potatoes

Potatoes are generous plants. They are easy to grow and produce abundant harvests. Give them the following and they will accept almost any planting situation:

  • Full sun
  • Loose, fertile soil
  • 1” of water per week

You can grow potatoes in containers, pots, or a special “grow bag”. But in my experience, containers like these require constant attention to watering and yield smaller harvests than those growing in a raised bed.
