Planting White Potatoes in a Tub or Bucket

8,848 Views
For a fun project, try growing Irish potatoes in a tub! It's time to buy the tubers and assemble the supplies now. By growing in perlite, the potatoes come out as clean as a whistle!

    This is cool, I plant potato vines because they grow really fast and a great accent in containers. Was surprised when I pulled out several fingerlings last year as I started fleshing up my containers for spring. And yes, I roasted them and they were delicious!

    Brilliant. MY neighbors grow their tomatoes in a 5-gallon bucket because they don't have a veggie garden space. It works great, and they have tons of fantastic tomatoes. Also, I would have never thought of growing veggies in perlite.

    I planted potatoes in very large used nursery pots last spring. I used potting soil (without fertilizer) and black kow mix. Turned out great, maybe I'll try the perlite this year.

    I have dug up potatoes when getting my little garden ready in the Spring - they grown from the eyes of potatoe peel that I had thrown into my composter.
