Growing Potato

By Gael (Plot 234)

  • Leave your potato on the windowsill till it starts to shoot.
  • Place your pot in a warm sunny position.
  • Fill pot 1/3 full of soil or compost.
  • Push your potato into the centre of pot.
  • Cover with 1cm of soil.
  • Water so the soil is damp but not wet.
  • Once green shoots emerge, add more soil but leave some green shoots still showing.
  • Remember to water your potato as it grows so that is just damp.
  • When the leaves start to die off you can harvest your potato.
    (Takes about 60 to 70 days.)
