We’ve planted! We decided to go for it on Easter Monday and our container growing seed potatoes are in. As an experiment we have used a variety of containers this season including a cardboard box, bucket, specialist potato sack as well as the recycled ACC bags that were so good last year.
The cardboard box has been well soaked due to the heavy rain all week so let’s hope it dries out a little bit over the next few weeks and stays in one piece.
This year instead of adding mushroom compost we are trying chicken pellets added to our multi purpose compost to see how the seed potatoes get on.
Let’s see your photos and we will keep you posted with how ours are doing. Hopefully we will get our allotment ones in in the next few days.
