How to Grow Potatoes at Home

Potatoes are an indispensable food on our dining-table. We often buy potatoes in the markets, but do you ever think growing potatoes at home! Here are some ways for you:

1. Using Wood boxes

Build or buy a bottomless square box. After the box is designed you can add additional slats and soil as the plants grow. In theory, you can temporarily remove the bottom slat for harvesting, or just tip it over. This is another strategy for growing potatoes where the ground soil is of poor quality. It yielded a similar quantity to the raised bed.


2. Using Bags

Put a few inches of a soil-compost mixture in the bottom of a bag, then plant three or four seed potato pieces and cover with 3 inches of soil. Continue adding soil as the plants grow until the bag is full. To harvest, turn the bag on its side and dump out the contents.


3. Using Straw Mulch

Place seed potatoes on the surface of prepared soil following the spacing specified for hilled rows and cover them with 3 to 4 inches of loose, seed-free straw. Mound more straw around the stems as they grow, eventually creating a layer of one foot or more in depth.
