bought similar last year - got about 50p worth of potatoes (about 1kg) but compost cost more lol

still, tasted nice

Surely you would just plant a potato?

Cold from me sorry!

Well I've ordered one. Probably won't get a record breaking crop, but it'll be interesting for the kids.

You can plant and grow from potatoes you already have but you get much better results from seed potatoes. Infact most supermaket bought potatoes are no use to grow more as they are treated to stop them from sprouting - so that they last longer.

Good product for anyone short on garden space :thumbsup:

Let's not forget that potatoes you buy in the supermarkets can be up to 2 years old. They are stored in hay in large warehouses.
Spuds from your own garden are magic, you can even taste the earth in them:-D

Hot potatoes from me!!
Wait till the frost has gone tho.

you sure about that? All supermarket ones I buy start sprouting within a week (stored in cool dark place).

Farmers just use their own small potatoes as seed potatoes, so if you like what you're eating, use them. If you're local to a farm that sells veg, they'll likely give you some of their spare small spuds for next to nothing.

Exactly.

I think that confirms the value of the comments.

Storing for 2 years would be some challenge!

is a little more accurate and gets away from the fantastical bucolic delights of storage "in hay" (How quaint!) to something like reality! :whistling:

Fair point well made :-D

Wait a couple of weeks and the seed potatoes will be reduced at B&Q and Homebase. Use those in an old plant pot of similar size and job done. cost me about £2 for 3 similar size tubs last year. Spuds were great too and kids loved watching them grow and havesting them.

hot !!

Hot - ordered thanks.

Oh c'mon garden centres do bags of seed potatoes for £4. Put them in the ground.

I know and have but it's well worth £4.45 for the container and packets of seeds

Given there are 5 packets of seeds with it, it is not a bad deal really even though you can not actually see what seeds you will get!

On the compost costing more point, google around for a local 'community composting centre' and get your organic compost for next to nothing. Its way cheaper than the garden centres. Practically free in fact :-)

The taters I have left over (best sprouted in the fridge by the way) I put in a large plant pot outside, all you need to do is cover them in compost and keep on layering the compost up when the leaves hit the surface (water them to the point of drowning lol), 2 potatoes will usually create about 6 new ones.

In the grow bag in that picture I doubt you will get the same crop as they suggest as they need a lot of space to get large crops.

Same here.. Sometimes sooner than a week.. x

How strong is the planter, I can see the Seagulls ripping it quite quickly

The description is just about pornographic :lol:
