Grow Your Own Potatoes

Betty gives us her step by step guide on growing your own potatoes

Step 1

To grow your own potatoes, you will need a pot with some soil inside it.

Step 2

Put some fertiliser into the soil and mix well

Step 3

Put the potatoes with the roots upward into the soil.

Step 4

This is what your pot should look like

Step 5

In approximately a months’ time you will see green shoots come up from the soil.

As the green shoots come through, keep them topped up with soil


Step 6

Then cover the potatoes with a small layer of soil

White flowers will appear on the shoots in about 80 days. Once these white flowers have died off, the potatoes will then be ready to harvest. Enjoy your potatoes
