Sorry I didn't realise that the caps lock was on as at work thats all I use and you didn't have to be so rude about it, it is my first post and I didn't add a link because I couldn't get it too work.

Not being rude. I think most people read what they've written and I thought I'd point it out to you. As a helpful gesture to a new member, you could read how to add a link in the "help" section.
Welcome anyway.:whistling:

It's no problem, it happens a lot. Welcome to HUKD

I've found some details from the manufacturers website & added them to the deal information.

And thank you for your first post on HUKD :thumbsup:

yeah do as you are told

I'm afraid it's still not working for me.

Great instore deal, and with the current climate. I think I will be looking for these to start my own saving of money.

Thanks....going to get a couple of these with the £10 voucher from the underpriced shed deal.

£15 On the Haxnicks website.:thumbsup:

These work quite well just remember to water them. You won't get loads and loads out of them coz of the size but they give a decent crop without needing to worry about hoeing/weeding etc.

Great first post, heat added. It's hard to take advice about "shouting" from a naked man! ;-) I wonder where you can buy the potatoes?

a waste of money really, as you dont need anything fancy to grow pototoes in.

An old dustbin would suffice but all I have used for abour 5 years is a fairly good quality black sack. Roll it down and fill with compost as the potatoes grow, when half full and the plant is mature all you have to do is cut slits in the bags to reveal to potatoes and the plant can carry on growing so you can harvest more later.

About £2.50 for around 50 bags so quite good value.

All these potato barrel/pots are just a gimmick but keep it simple is the answer.

Thanks to thelurch, I think that's a brilliant idea.

whats the best way to grow them an old sprouted potatoe or seeds (i'm a novice) Many thanks

Nice find = but I use old compost bags turned inside out.....as you have to buy the compost to fill em up works well for me.....

I took home Retail (owners of homebase) to court over that. Said i would, and put my money where my mouth was. Ended up in Arbitration rather than full court hearing, settled at £100 +£10 voucher!

still got the voucher so will use that for potato thing like you.

Basingstoke Homebase had none this evening.

You say potato i say patio. Potato, patio....and so on and so forth.

Totally agree. But another cheap and easy method is to tip a tomato grow bag on its end, cut a slit in top and plant the potatoes! Grow bag deals usually work out at about 3 for a £5 or even cheaper so well worth a go.
Wilkinsons have got seed potatoes and onions which are very easy and can be grown in pots or small gardens too.
Hope this helps

poundland has potatoes, onions, beans and lots more seeds in. brought some last year worked very well. only a pound great value.

Thanks potato seeds it is

Agreed - good first post.
Is it a problem if I point out "shouting" just 'cos of my avvi? I hasten to add other "shouters" have been given an extremely bad time....I'm just pointing it out. Sorry if the Body disrupts other peoples train of thought....:w00t:

I bought some seed potato's from poundland last year and there crop was no way near as good as from what I had bought from a garden centre.

I've just ordered a nice collection from t&m this time. And yes not woth buying these as empty compost bags do the same job ;-)

Not a problem on either count. You were quite tactful about the shouting and I think the IOP understood how annoying it can be. As for the avatar, you could put a pic of Marilyn Monro in there for all I care, I was just rippin' yer knittin'! :-D

Did you feed the spuds with fertiliser? Your garden centre certainly would - which explains the better potatoes. :thumbsup:

Does this come with seed potatoes?

Anyone here got any preference to seeds or just bung in some sprouting spuds??? I would really appreciate your thoughts!

Heat to the OP even though I won't buy them. He has put me in a good frame of mind to grow my own...

Seed Potatoes are not seeds from a packet, they are basically fully grown spuds which have been grown specifically for cultivation so they can be disease free.

You can use old ones from the cupboard, but they will not be as reliable/disease free as ones you buy from a garden centre.

All the seed companies ( suttons/dobies/thomson morgan etc are selling them now.

Planting times vary on which variety ( google potato growing for more) but you generally buy them in advance and then "chit" them which means putting the potatoes on a windowsill to start sprouting ( like they do in the cupboard). Then they can be planted when the time is right.

Other posters have suggested great ideas too like compost bags and growbags on end.

I have 3 massive composting bins so make my own compost and dont have to buy it so thats why I use bins/bin liners.

Hope that helps.

Whats the difference between these and heavy duty black sacks (except the price!).

Temp on this is unreal.
