Home-grown Irish Potatoes are simply the best – just add butter and salt and nothing tastes better. Potatoes can be grown even in the smallest section of soil and are ideal for growing in bags and pots, to give you lots of great-tasting Potatoes which are easy to crop and care for.
Good soil preparation is important – ideally use ground where Potatoes have not been grown for several seasons. Add some organic farmyard manure or organic chicken fertiliser as potatoes are hungry feeders and appreciate plenty of nutrition throughout the season.
- Potatoes do great in raised beds, grow bags and pots.
- Remember to add organic chicken manure fertiliser when planting
- Add sulphate of potash during earthing up to ensure a nice floury dry Potato!
At the end of the day, nothing beats a delicious home-grown Irish Potato. You can enjoy them boiled, baked, chipped, roasted and fried!
