In the past, potatoes always needed 'earthing up' during their growing process, which is a complex and tiring work for people. But recent studies have shown that potatoes grown in our grain bags do not need this process, which makes it easy for you to grow them in your patio.

1. Use high-quality multifunctional compost to fill the 8 litre potato grain bag to around 2.5cm (1") below the rim.
2. Carefully place a cut potato tuber into the compost, with the branches pointing upward toward the surface of the soil at a depth of 12cm (5 "). Gently cover the tuber with compost.
3. Now all you need to do is water them, put the potato bag in a bright, frostless place and wait for them to grow.
4. Feed potatoes with potato fertilizer every other week and water the grain bags when the compost begins to dry.
