To get the freshest potatoes, they really need to be grown in the home garden. Potatoes are certainly not hard to grow. You could simply throw some peelings with eyes on them into the garden and cover them over with dirt or straw.
– The roots – The underground stem between the seed potato and the top of the ground – The leaves and stalk that are seen above ground.
– It ensures a long stem from which the plant can set many potatoes. – It also prevents the new potatoes from going green due to exposure to light. – It helps to support the plant. – It reduces attacks from potato moth caterpillars.
Make sure to choose a really big pot. One potato plant should set several potatoes, and these need lots space to grow. Fill it to one-third with potting mix or good soil, fertilize and then plant one to three tubers.
Cover with around 10 cm of soil and water gently. When the shoots appear, cover them again to about two-thirds the height of the pot. Repeat this step until the pot is almost full of soil.
